UNP further said that party was not happy with the manner in which the polls chief was handling the situation. He said the UPFA was misusing state property including vehicles and public sector personnel for its campaign for the March 17 elections.

And similar situation had prevailed at the previous elections as well but the Election Commissioner in spite of powers vested in him had failed to prevent the government from flouting the election laws. "We want him to enforce the law strictly or we will move the courts against him,"
