President talks ‘tough’ against LG representatives
President Maithripala Sirisena warns that he will not leave any room for chairmen and representatives who will be elected to local government bodies, to engage in corruption, fraud, and violence.
Addressing a public gathering in Siripura, Polonnaruwa today (Dec. 31), the president said that stern legal action will be taken against such local government representatives.
He also pointed out that the previous regime collapsed as a result of certain actions by heads of LG bodies.
