A clash had taken place between 02 factions during a United National Party meeting which was organised at Agalawatte in Matugama yesterday.
This meeting was organised with regard to the Ranasinghe Premadasa remembrance ceremony which is scheduled to be held in Colombo on the 01st of May.
This clash had taken place with the arrival of Parliamentarian Palitha Thewarapperuma for this meeting which was organised by provincial councillors Shiral Lakthilake and Maithree Gunaratne.
Upon his arrival, Parliamentarian Palitha Thewarapperuma had expressed his objection for organising a meeting without his approval as the Electoral Organiser of Matugama.
It is reported that thereafter a clash had taken place between the supporters of Parliamentarian Palitha Thewarapperuma and the attendees of the meeting.
Although we attempted to contact Parliamentarian Palitha Thewarapperuma to inquire with this regard, our attempts were futile.
