Crowd protests over attacks on UNP offices

A crowd gathered at Anamaduwa on Friday to hold a protest rally in support of Puttalam district UNP MP Palitha Rangebandara. They were protesting over two grenade attacks on UNP premises. The first involved an unexploded grenade at the UNP’s main office at Madampe last Tuesday, and in the second incident last Thursday a grenade exploded at the party office at Anamaduwa, causing damage.

The crowd was joined by Mr. Rangebandara, provincial councillor Sudath Chandrasekera and other council members. The protesters, who were carrying placards, gathered at Sudampaya Hall in Anamaduwa and set out in a procession that wound its way through the town and up to the clock tower, where Mr. Rangebandara spoke to media people.

“The national television channel Rupavahini gives false propaganda every day about the war and army operations,” the MP said. “The people are being told lies. The truth is that the whole country is turning into a cemetery. The war is taking a huge toll on our youth.”
