By Cyril Wimalasurendre

KANDY – United National Party (UNP) activists of Hewaheta electorate are protesting against the change of the chief organiser for the electorate.

At a largely attended meeting of the UNP local leaders and supporters resolved to oppose the appointment of former UNP Central Provincial Member Shanthini Kongahage as the UNP chief organiser of Hewaheta at the expense of present chief Organiser and sitting member of the Central Provincial Council Chanaka Ilapperuma.

The meeting chaired by Patahewaheta Pradeshiya Sabha Chairman J. S. B. Rajanayaka unanimously decided to make representations to the Sirikotha against the appointment.

It was wrong to appoint as the party chief organiser one who had lost at the PC election in place of the successful candidate and sitting member, the protesters said at the meeting held at Talatuoya on Sunday (09).
