The UNP has said action would be taken against the party members who had assaulted UNP Puttalam District MP Palitha Range Bandara.
Bandara was assaulted and seriously injured during the April general election.
The legislator found fault with the party secretary for not taking proper disciplinary action against those who were allegedly involved in the attack, who were also members of the UNP.
Deputy Leader Karu Jayasuriya has however said that severe measures would be taken to penalize those responsible for Bandara’s assault.
Jayasuriya had made this statement during a meeting with the UNP Puttalam District Youth Front.
Last week several of Bandara’s supporters carried out a protest outside party headquarters Sirikotha, calling for action against Bandara’s attackers.
