The Election Secretariat said the office of Senior Minister Athauda Seneviratne located within the Kegalle District Secretariat has been sealed off.
The action was taken after it was revealed that the office was being used for election propaganda work.

Campaign posters belonging to the senior minister’s son, contesting for the Kegalle District from the UPFA were found at the office premises.
