“Give me the Kandy Deputy Mayor’s post or I will....”
Kandy Municipal Councillor Ilahi Abdeen (UNP) has warned that he
would take a crucial political decision before October 31 if the deputy
mayoral post is not offered to him by the party hierarchy.
He said he should be given the post in keeping with the party
decision after two years and this deadline has been long overdue since
Deputy Mayor Suminda Wickramasinghe was allowed to hold this post
only for two years, Abdeen said. Abdeen was formerly a Provincial
Councillor of the Central Province as well as the former Chairman of the
Kandy Private Bus Operators’ Association.
He holds the post of the co-ordinating secretary of UNP
Parliamentarian Lakshman Kiriella.
