The President issued these instructions as soon as she heard reports of the Parliamentarian being engaged in malpractices.

The secretary of Jantha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP), Telsin Silva, in a letter to the President had said that the M.P Jinadasa Nandasena and others had attacked their election office at Peliyagoda Thursday evening.
