D.V. Upul’s eye clinic ends abruptly
A tense situation occurred during a program of providing spectacles free of charge at Suriyawewa Sri Bodhiraja temple in Hambantota today.
The eye clinic program was organized by former Southern provincial Minister MP D.V. Upul.
However, a tense situation occurred when Suriyawewa PHI Susantha Kariyawasam claimed that the standard of the program is questionable.
Two officers from the Southern province Social Services Department participated in the eye clinic program which was held this morning with the participating of large number of residents of the area.
However, PHI Susantha Kariyawasam who arrived at the premises questioned the qualifications of these officers.
Later, the two officers were taken to Suriyawewa Police.
Expressing his views MP D.V. Upul noted that if the two are taken into custody, that he would also join them, and stressed that the good governance cannot stop a charity cause.
