A heated situation erupted following an event at the historic Ganewatte Devalaya in Piliyanda yesterday.

This was over an alleged financial fraud at the devalaya.

Many politicians representing the Kesbewa electorate participated at the event.

The chief custodian of the devalaya resigned stating that he was unable to work with the Chairman of the Development Committee of the Devalaya, Former Deputy Minister Chandana Kathriarachchi.

Chief Custodian Mahee Weliwatte said he resigned as money collected in till boxes at the devalaya had disappeared.

Residents had requested the Chief Custodian not to leave and suggested appointing a new Chairman in place of Former Deputy Minister Chandana Kathriarachchi and Board of Officials.

Meanwhile, family members of Former Minister Somaweera Chandrasiri also entered the premises laying claims over the dewalaya which led to another problematic.

However, a new board was appointed thereafter.
