Alleged supporters of former Minister of Resettlement and UPFA candidate Rishard Badiudeen are harassing private bus owners transporting Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) to the polling stations in the Vanni District, Advisor to the Elections Commissioner Bandula Kulathunga said.
“These Rishard Badiudeen supporters have even taken over some of these private buses we had provided for the IDP’s,” Kulathunga said. According to him this service was provided during the Presidential elections in January by the Elections Department and then too it was sabotaged.
