President Maithripala Sirisena and Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe has had a lengthy discussion on the political developments on Thursday night, sources close to the Prime Minister said yesterday.

The meeting has taken place at Minister Rajitha Senaratne’s residence in Colombo. The meeting had lasted four hours, past midnight, according to sources.

The duo had discussed about the no confidence motion brought against the Prime Minister and on how they could continue the unity government after April 4, 2018.

This development comes despite statements made by some SLFPers including Minister S. B Dissanayake that it is difficult for the party to oppose the no faith motion while some UNPers have expressed concern about the conduct of Deputy Speaker Thilanga Sumathipala during the past few days.

    Ever since this government came to power, the country has been rendered unstable by the protesters, JO and other bad and evil elements. The country should always be stable but under Yahapalana, this will be impossible because people take mean advantages of everything, sometimes needs an iron fist to crush these bad elements.
