“This order reveals not only the weakness and ineptitude of the District Administration and the Government as a whole but also implies authoritarianism and depriving the people of the right to participate in the democratic process. In the light of the above, we strongly urge, on behalf of the people, to withdraw the illogical, arbitrary and dictatorial order to avoid confrontation between the administration and the people”, he said.

The returning officer had on Thursday said all the political parties had agreed to the restriction during a meeting with him.
