 Nishantha Muthuhettigama, elected to the Southern Provincial Council on the UPFA ticket, skipped yesterday’s swearing in ceremony.

Sources said that he had left the country on a private visit after accusing the SLFP leadership of not honouring a pre-poll promise to appoint him as Chief Minister of the Province. Sources said that an irate Muthuhettigama had criticised the party leadership for cold shouldering him.

 

Sources told The Island that Muthuhettigama was now likely to face further disciplinary action. Recently the SLFP removed him from the post of SLFP organiser for Akmeemana for allegedly threatening the Chief Returning Officer of Galle. The vacancy was filled by former SLFP stalwart Richard Pathirana’s son.
