The party which kicked off on the 30th April 2015 was halted around 2:30am with other guests nearby ducking for cover.

At the time of writing the injured party were deliberating if the said assault should be reported to the police.

MP. Dunesh Gankanda has a history of violence especially when under influence of alcohol. Previously it was reported that he assaulted and bit the nose of Diwakaran, a Tamil businessman at a club in Galle Face hotel also in the early hours around 1.30am on May 27, 2012. Then Gankanda had gone into hiding from the Police had later surrendered to the Colpetty Police through his lawyer and the Colombo Fort Magistrate released Gankanda on bail.

On many other previous occasions his spate of violence has been reported where he has gone on to assault his mother’s sister, a member of the MSD, a bodyguard and a female maid servant.

MP. Gakanda had threatened to assault his 17 and a half year step son and verbally assaulted his teenage step daughter two years ago.

Colombo Telegraph in an earlier report quoted his step son claiming MP.Gankanda to be a racist. His step son was reported to have said “Uncle Dunesh is not fit for politics, I’m half Sinhala and half Tamil, he calls me ‘Demala pakaya’ (Tamil Cunt ). He is a racist. He has never said sorry. He even abused my sister with ‘Sudda Sinhala filth’. Once I asked him to apologize to her, and he said I’m not going to say sorry to a ‘demala pakaya’”.

    I’m saddened at this persons behavior due to his incapability to handle alcohol. I have closely associated MrChandra Gankanda, this person’s father. He is a well respected person in Pelamadulla, his family is well known well respected. Pelamadulla has the honour of having well respected people and avery good business community, Sinhalese, Moslem and Tamils, one only has to drive through Pelmadulla to see the high quality restaurants, well functioning tea factories owned for generation. Getting back to subject matter, this MP should be barred from politics, violence to women should not be tolerated under any circumstances. I’m sad that Chandra has to endure the hurt and pain due to his son’s pathetic violence towards women, I have associated Chandra from early 1970s, Chandra we share your hurt and pain. The president and RW should take note, is this the type of politicians you like to represent the government, it is a sad day for Sri Lanka.

    People with such disorders and temperaments must be taken out of politics. Even MaRa fits the bill as he too does not know his limits when drunk.

    This guy is a coward and an imbecile who does not know how to behave. Fits in well with the Mara regime thugs. Tpolice must take action against this thug for assault. He will be very comfortable spending time in Welikada where he will be treated as a woman beater and given the works he deserves by all those sex starved criminals.

    The UNP as a party should take the lead and discipline this buffoon who is becoming a major embarrassment . Even though this happened at a private party , being a so called lawmaker , the guy needs to set the tone and be an example to society instead all we hear is his constant bouts of alcohol induced violence . If the party doesn’t take a stand , its up to the people to clip the wings of this racist thug and kick him out of public life .

    In fairness to this “buffoon” the man’s become an alcoholic due to the wife who is nothing but an arrogant bully, who he has to bow down to big time. . Chandra your son needs help you have done your bit for the party, you need to check on his behaviour before it’s too late.
