The UNP says the local government bodies under the control of the governing UPFA were in a mess.
UNP Spokesperson and parliamentarian Gayantha Karunathileka has said that some local government bodies were in a mess with UPFA members ignoring the heads of the bodies.
He has queried as to whether the people wanted to vote for the governing UPFA that has already caused a mess in several local government bodies won by it.
He has observed that at the elections for the Colombo Municipal Council (CMC), people would have to decide on whether they want to vote for a party that has provided them with houses in the past or the party that would evict them if elected to administer the CMC.
He has alleged that the government is planning on evicting low income families from Colombo after the elections conclude.
Referring to charges of corruption leveled against the CMC by the governing party, Karunathileka has said the council was governed by an independent group that joined the SLFP a few months after being elected.
