Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe has told UNPers not to respond to the statement made by President Maithripala Sirisena yesterday.

Informed sources said the Premier had said this when he met party members including seniors at the UNP working committee meeting held at Sirikotha this morning and was responding to a suggestion made by young MPs that the party should respond to the President immediately.

“The ministers and MPs should not respond to the President but should resolve the problems faced by the people,” the Prime Minister had said. (Yohan Perera)

    I can't understand this as he has been attacked relentlessly by the president and we don't hear anything against him from him. Is there any strategy behind this move?

    Seasoned politician and a statesman ... even though he has mistakes

    He is scared to respond. Because he has a file opened

    Absolutely correct, it is a waste of time to talk about the same thing over and over again, instead doing something meaningful to resolve burning issues of masses.

    Perera Thursday, 31 May 2018 03:39 PM

    like he did for the last 3 years ?

    Burning issues of his buddies.

    It seems that PM is secretly working for MR. He is doing everything to tarnish UNP.

    Sanath Thursday, 31 May 2018 03:31 PM

    Why? Is he having skeletons in the cupboard, and fear those will come out?

    Ranil has been a seasoned politician who does not lke to dignify people like Srisena becase now President Srisena has been so desperate . He who himself has made this situation since he does not have leadership quality . This responsible post is not a joke as he thinks to talk anything and everything in every nook and corner .

    NO RW! we need an answer, are you protecting the so called looters!!! As we know that Mahendran handled all financial issues from a Bank in Dubai!!!! So, let the cat out now and let your name be held as a hero to our future generation!

    Hassanda Thursday, 31 May 2018 04:20 PM

    The PM is guilty for all the Allegations levelled at himAnd some party members and also for Shielding The Ex President MR and his family members from taking legal actions For killings

    Disgusted Citizen Thursday, 31 May 2018 04:23 PM

    Sirisena has forgotten that he became President riding 'piggy back' on the UNP

    rational citizen Thursday, 31 May 2018 04:37 PM

    don't forget that had RW contsted he would have lost - UNP piggybacked on the promise to eradicate corruption but did more corruption.

    malij Thursday, 31 May 2018 04:35 PM

    President has shot himself in the foot again. Each

    There is nothing to respond as it is the truth.

    Sirisena is suffering from Dimensia and an impeachment motion must be brought and he must be removed,,,he publicly said in 2016 that he authorised the Helicopters for Mahinda to depart,,,he publicly said before the election of 8 Jan 2015 that once elected he will take responsibility to implement the 100 day programme,,now he is denying responsibility for these two acts,,,do we need such a double tounged irresponsible President...in 2015 after winning election he publcly said he will go hime after the first term,,,now he says he going going to stand for election for a secong term,,,such a conning President is not good for Sri Lanka,,high time to bring an impeachment and remove him,, anyway people are gonna reject him at the next election,,
