USP activists have been putting up lawful posters publicizing the election rally to be held on the following day at Chavakachcheri town. While they were putting up posters on Point Pedro Road more than 10 people claiming to be supporters of Angajan came in several motor bikes and abused and assaulted our comrades threatening them to leave the area immediately without engaging in any political work.
Our comrades initially retreated and left the place as they could not challenge the thugs who easily outnumbered ours. However they were able to take down the registered number of one of the motor bikes and that has been provided to the police.
USP invites all democratic forces in the country to come forward to denounce this political thuggery and do not allow moneyed corrupt politicians to snatch the whatever political freedom existing in the north right now.
