* Sri Lanka Minister warns of manipulation of elections by way of NGO funds
Sat, Jul 19, 2014, 08:25 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

July 19, Colombo: Sri Lanka's Minister of External Affairs Prof. G.L. Peiris said that a large amount of money is flowing in to the country at present as funds for Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs).

Addressing an event in Kandy, the Minister said this pattern is seen during election times and the government was careful about it.

Prof. Peiris said that the NGOs lecturing the citizens of this country on voting was an insult to the voters.

He pointed out that the aim of these programs was not educating people about citizen's rights, but to change the regime.

The Minister said the changes in the country must be decided by the people on their own free will and not under the influence of foreign forces.

He further stated that there was an attempt to manipulate the election by way of money and to grab the right of the people to take decisions from them and the people must be mobilized against these goals.
