No drug dealers in Parliament
UNP to deny access to candidates with links to narco
Prime Minister and leader of the United National Party, Ranil
Wickremesinghe has requested the National Dangerous Drugs Control Board
(NDDCB), to submit a report directly to him, if any UNP candidate
running for Parliament this August has established links with the
narcotics trade, top political sources confirmed.Accordingly,
Wickremesinghe has reportedly informed NDDCB Chairman, Dr. Chamira
Nilanga Samarasinghe, that he is committed to denying access to
Parliament, to those whose conduct is inimical to society.
When contacted, Dr. Samarasinghe said such a request has been made
and the NDDCB will submit the same, in the event substantial information
is available, in the next few days.
