United National Party (UNP) Parliamentarian and Minister of Science and Technology, Sujeewa Senasinghe, has written to UNP General Secretary Akila Viraj Kariyawasam over a show cause letter he had received.
Senasinghe says he received the letter by fax but does not believe it was sent by the UNP General Secretary as it is vague and unprofessional.
The Minister called on the UNP General Secretary to conduct an inquiry into the bogus letter which tarnishes the image of the UNP General Secretary and Legal Secretary of the UNP.
He also said that if the letter was indeed sent by the UNP General Secretary then it is the duty of the UNP General Secretary or Legal Secretary to mention the provisions in the UNP constitution under which action is being taken.
The Minister also said that the UNP General Secretary or Legal Secretary must also submit copies of the purported complaints against him.
A letter had been sent to Senasinghe by the UNP General Secretary saying there were complaints against him, accusing him of making public comments against the party and the party leadership.
He was asked to show cause as to why disciplinary action should not be taken against him. (Colombo Gazette)
