A Government official who was sent from Colombo to Jaffna for the Development Council election in 1981 yesterday described how the Cabinet Ministers of the UNP Government rigged that election by chasing the people at polling booths.
He said a special contingent of henchmen was sent from Kurunegala to Jaffna to disrupt the Development Council Election in the Jaffna district and create mayhem there.
D.W. Sirimanne who worked at the Jaffna Municipal Council as the storekeeper said that a Cabinet Minister from the Kurunegala district addressed the officials and the UNP supporters when the train was to leave from Kurunegala railway station for Jaffna.
