EPDP continues to intimidate other contestants in the islets of Jaffna

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 06 April 2010, 14:35 GMT]
Eezham People’s Democratic Party (EPDP), an ally of the ruling United People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA) in the islets of Jaffna which is under the absolute control of Sri Lanka Navy (SLN), has spread a false news in its website and media that 3 local youths had been attacked with swords in Naaranthanai in Oorkaavatu’rai in the islands of Jaffna with the aim of scaring the polling agents of other contestants from appearing for duty in the islets of Jaffna on the election day, sources in Jaffna said. Sinhalese thugs from South brought to Jaffna by United National Party (UNP) had slashed the youths, according to news spread by EPDP, the sources added. However, residents of Naaranthanai denied any attack on youths in their village while Jaffna dailies did not carry any such news.

Though EPDP claimed that the 3 injured youths are admitted to Jaffna Teaching Hospital, the administration of the hospital said there were no such patients admitted.

This rumour is being spread intentionally to intimidate the polling agents and supporters of the other contesting parties that they too will be attacked and killed if they dare to go to the islets of Jaffna, the sources said.

EPDP intends to engage in election frauds in the islets of Jaffna in a large scale, local residents of the islets said.
