Politi­cos with a grudge!

- Politics

The Diyawanna politi­cos of a cer­tain district had re­port­edly boy­cotted the in­au­gu­ral meet­ing of the District De­vel­op­ment Com­mit­tee.

The eight politi­cos due to at­tend the meet­ing had boy­cotted it as a show of protest against the politico who has been ap­pointed as the Chair­man of the com­mit­tee.

The Chair­man-politico had as a Po­hot­tuwa can­di­date se­cured the high­est num­ber of pref­er­ence votes in a fiercely fought bat­tle which had led to in­cur­ring the an­i­mos­ity of his ri­vals, they say.

Only gov­ern­ment white-col­lar high-ups had at­tended this district de­vel­op­ment com­mit­tee held in a main city.
