SLFP, EPDP operatives threaten TNA candidates, voters

[TamilNet, Sunday, 22 September 2013, 23:41 GMT]
A group of operatives affiliated with a Sri Lankan minister, attempted to assault Doctor G Gunaseelan, who is an elected member of the new Northern Provincial Council, representing Tamil National Alliance in Mannaar. The attack took place on Sunday evening around 5:00 p.m. A clash ensued between his supporters and Colombo’s UPFA ‘supporters’ while they crossed the main road to reach their village of Thoaddave’li after visiting Thaazhvup-paadu villagers. Meanwhile, there were widespread reports in the islets off Jaffna that EPDP operatives, visiting village to village, were harassing the TNA supporters.

In the Mannaar incident, two of the TNA supporters who were with Gunaseelan were injured and were admitted to the hospital.

Gunaseelan’s vehicle was damaged in the clash, which has taken place at Thaaraapuram, news sources in Mannaar said.

SL Policemen have been deployed at Thaarapuram following the clash.
