A hoarding erected in support of United National Party (UNP) Kegalle District Leader, Kabir Hashim, was set on fire in Kegalle last night.

No injuries were reported, however, Kabir Hashim’s camp has condemned the cowardly attack stating that the opposition are resorting to such tactics as they fear a contest in a free and fair election.
