The United National Party had a meeting for its electoral organizers on Tuesday to discuss the organization of the party in view of the future elections.
Parliamentarian Senasinghe had said that ‘a certain party’ had lodged a complaint with the President implicating the Minister, the State Minister and the BoI that they tried to seek bribe for the approval of a project.
