Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe had instructed UNP Ministers and MPs not to make controversial statements dragging President Maithripala Sirisena anymore.
Prime Minister Wickremesinghe had given the instruction at the UNP Working Committee meeting at the party headquarters Sirikotha this morning.
Party sources said the Prime Minister had also informed the UNP MPs and Ministers to take on the SLFP Ministers directly and settle whatever issues which they may have with the other main ally of the Government.
Some of the Ministers, including Harin Fernando have then responded saying the UNPers were merely responding to the critical statements made by some SLFP Ministers drawing the Bond Commission report.
MP S. M. Marikar had informed Prime Minister that his statement with regard to President was misinterpreted or misreported.
He had denied calling President Sirisena 'Pickpocket President’. He said that the UNP Pickpocketed Mr. Sirisena from former President Mahinda Rajapaksa.
Mr Wickremesinghe had then cautioned the Ministers and MPs saying the Bond Commission report would not have any negative impact on the UNP as the report had not faulted any member of the party.(Yohan Perera)
What do you mean by the Bond Report did not fault any UNP MPs. How about Ravi K, the durect political appointees you yourself keeping silent while the mice were at play? None if these fellows are fit to govern this country!

The impact that the bond commission report would have on the UNP can best be seen at the forthcoming elections.
