The UNP Organiser of Ratmalana and Parliamentarian Mohanlal Grero has said that naming a mayor from Dehiwela for the Dehiwela–Mt. Lavinia Municipal Council is an unfair action.
He said that he will have to make a hard decision if this error will not be rectified within 72 hours. He expressed these views at a media briefing held in Ratmalana today. He said that the General Secretary and the Party Leader were requested in writing not to appoint a mayor for the Dehiwela –Mt. Lavinia Municipal Council but to leave the option open for all to contest, as all have a right to contest. He said that on previous occasions a mayor was not named. It is only this time that this was done. He respectfully requested the party to rectify the error before 12.00 on Tuesday. He stressed that he will resign from the position of Ratmalana Organiser if his request will not be fulfilled, to work according to the dictates of his heart as he cannot approve wrong deeds for ever.
