Minister Sagala Rathnayake vows action against corrupt UNP candidates

Law and Order Minister Sagala Ratnayake warned all UNP candidates contesting the elections that in the event they are found guilty of corruption or fraud after the elections, action will be taken to initiate legal action against them and the party too would take disciplinary action against them.

The minister noted that the UNP has not fielded candidates who have committed offences such as having parties after raping women, tying government servants to trees, making teachers kneel before them, killing of foreigners and their fiancées etc.

He made this statement addressing an election rally held in the Bodeniya area in Kotapola, Deniyaya, yesterday.
