UPFA MP-elect Padma Udaya Shantha convened a media briefing on Tuesday August 25. At the briefing MP-elect Udaya Shantha revealed details of an illegal reclamation of lands in the town of Moneragala.

He alleged that 100 – 200 UNP members arrived on Monday night and had  illegally reclaimed a number of lands that come under the purview of the Moneragala Pradeshiya Sabha and the land of the Moneragala weekly fair.

He added that the people of Moneragala contacted him and said that supporters of UNP’s Ranjith Maddumabandara are taking over lands, adding that he made a complaint with the OIC and the Pradeshiya Sabha.

News 1st contacted Ranjith Madduma Bandara in this regard. Bandara, speaking in this regard, said that this is a baseless accusation and a lie.
