Badulla District UNFGG candidate Harin Fernando yesterday told former United People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA)  MP  Dilan Perera to drink poiso5n after his party loses the upcoming general elections.

At a media briefing held after Mr. Perera had  (at a news briefing of his own), urged UNP leaders, including the prime minister, to drink poison following the announcement of the results of the general elections, Mr. Fernando said it would be the UPFAers, including M/s Dilan Perera, Bandula Gunawardena and Udaya Gammanpila who would have to drink poison in large quantities on August 18 when they found that the UPFA had lost.

“Dilan organises media briefings and displays bottles of poison. He himself has attempted to drink poison on three occasions. I have two gallons of Folidol, (insecticide)  here with me, and I invite Mr. Perera to drink it on August 18,” Mr. Fernando said. He rejected the allegations levelled against the Prime Minister, Minister Ravi Karunanayake, the Central Bank Governor and him, by the UPFA, and pointed out that there were several charges made against Dilan Perera by the Auditor General and the Foreign Employment Bureau.
