Basil Rajapaksa dispatches 1000-member squad to Trincomalee to ensure UPFA polling in PC elections

[TamilNet, Friday, 31 August 2012, 21:37 GMT]
More than one thousand persons have arrived in Trincomalee district under the instruction of SL presidential sibling and Economic Development Minister Basil Rajapaksa to manipulate the polling in the forthcoming provincial elections in the East in favour of the ruling United Peoples Freedom Alliance (UPFA), informed sources in Trincomalee told TamilNet Friday.

Expenses of food and lodging of these persons are to be borne by the SL Economic Development Ministry.

Most of these persons have been brought down from Colombo. They are being distributed to eleven Divisional Secretariat divisions in the Trincomalee district at 100 persons per DS division.

More than eighty percent of voters in the DS divisions of Padavi Siripura, Gomarankadawela, Seruwila, Kantha’laay and Morawewa have become Sinhalese due to demographic changes in the recent decades.

In the meantime, Namal Rajapaksa, a son of SL president and a parliamentarian from Hambantota, is also in Trincomalee district in mustering support to the ruling UPFA candidates by organizing seminars for youths using the resources of the Colombo regime under the guise of ‘development projects’ now being implemented in the district by several non-governmental organizations such as NECORD, NEIAP and NECCDEP.
