UNP Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe said that there was no evidence to believe that a foreign country was behind the crisis situation in Sri Lanka.

He said this to journalists attached to the Foreign News Agencies at the Temple Trees last morning.

“The allegation that some foreign country is behind the crisis in Sri Lanka is only a piece of information published in some social media,” he said.

Meanwhile, Mr Wickremesinghe, who divulged details on negotiations that took place with regard to the fielding of a common candidate for the last Presidential Election, said that incumbent President Maithripala Sirisena was chosen as the candidate, despite some parties and civil groups proposed the name of former President Chandrika Kumaratunga.

He told the journalists that he got UNP to pass a resolution backing Mr Sirisena as per the agreement reached by the parties. (Yohan Perera)

    CK would have done it earlier. She did once before and would have never hesitated to send you home for the second time, if she was the President way before the time MY3 took.

    Ranil, it is time for you to hand over the reins to a young politician and retire gracefully.

    Good. It is only you who use foreigm powers to achieve your selfish objectives. Now you cry to "friendly" foreign powers and we saw something similar during the last stages of the war. They will shed crocodile tears but....

    He is bringing various stories once he was ousted and why are you messing with the democracy and also staying at a state owned residence even after being sacked ?

    RW please give the UNP leadership to someone else. Why cant you see that you are not popular. Please go abroad and do your studies man. The moment you hand over the leadership the tide will change. You are old and your strategies and foresight is a failure. Fight for the PM post and win it. But declare anothet leader right now. You will win easily. And put the opposing camp under pressure.

    This has nothing to do with Ranil, this is back stabbing by the president. Just because changing the pillows won't cure the head ache..

    Ram Thursday, 01 November 2018 01:44 PM

    @ Fareed, Thats why the head was changed instead of the pillow....
