Sinister plan on polls eve
There was a move to rob or buy National Identity
Cards of voters on January 24 or 25 to prevent voters exercising
their franchise. We have informed the Elections Commissioner and the
Inspector General of Police to take action to deploy mobile police
patrols to prevent miscreants resorting to the same tactics adopted
by subversive elements during the spate of violence in 1988-90
period, UPFA General Secretary and Education Minister Susil
Premajayanth said yesterday.
