U Chaminda Janaka Tissa Kuttiarachchi whose name was deleted from the Moneragala UNP candidates list filed a Fundamental Rights petition yesterday before the Supreme Court requesting that his name be entered on the nomination list presented by the UNF for Moneragala District or to disallow the whole list if his name could not be accommodated.

The Petitioner cited that 46 persons including the Elections Commissioner and UNP General Secretary as respondents.

The petitioner said his name had been entered in the nomination list of UNF candidates for the Moneragala District earlier.

However, when the nomination papers were handed over his name has been deleted.

The General Secretary of the UNP Tissa Attanayake writing to the Elections Commissioner had stated his signature had been forged to remove petitioners name by applying 'tipex' on it.

In his petition Tissa Kuttiarachchi states he had put his signature after his name was entered in the nomination paper but when the nomination paper was handed over to the authorities his name had been deleted and the signature of the Secretary General Tissa Attanayake had been forged. Tissa Kuttiarachchi is the candidate who entered the UNF nomination list for the Moneragala District.
