Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe has requested UNP MPs, currently in China as part of a parliamentary delegation, to cut short their visit and return to the country by April 1, sources from the Prime Minister’s office said yesterday.

UNP MPs Ranjan Ramanayake, Dr Kavinda Jayawardene, Dr Tusitha Wijemanne and Rohini Mumari Wijeratne are part of the delegation headed by Speaker Karu Jayasuriya, who were scheduled to return on April 3.

Sources said the reason for the request was to prepare for the no-confidence motion submitted against the Prime Minister. It is expected to be taken up for debate on April 4.

Meanwhile, some UNP seniors are to inform Mr. Wickremesinghe that they would focus on the no-confidence motion at the UNP Working Committee meeting on Thursday. (Yohan Perera)

    Why? Is it national duty?

    Labby Tuesday, 27 March 2018 10:08 AM

    Yes it is. The job of Prime Minister is certainly national duty, in case you didn't know.

    The same person who went on a Trip in mid of a flood is asking others to return in time of a no confidence motion against him. Shows where his priorities are.

    All these overseas visits, so many of them??? How useful and what benefits to the country? Don't we citizens have a right to know this?

    Sir, you helped your mango friend MR and his family. You helped Weerawansa who had 3 forged passports and you got another new passport and he enjoyed his planned trip. Because to exist in power, you will do any third class acts, what a shame putha.

    Samson Samaranayake Tuesday, 27 March 2018 10:43 AM

    Very soon you will be removed from your seat Sir..... you are a dirty liar and a cheater and you always have deals with robbers.

    No reason can find to keep him as pm.he is a piece of garbage now.he made it for him by himself.

    Patrick Udugama (Attorney-at-Law) Tuesday, 27 March 2018 10:45 AM

    There is enough proves to say that you begged Mahinda to ask his gangsters to withdraw the No Confidence motion, that is why even MR did not sign for it.

    Lal Piyal Mendis Tuesday, 27 March 2018 11:53 AM

    Mahinda did not sign the NCM because to save and protect his looters, not for anything.

    Need of the hour is to save you. Next step is to deliver all the promises and put a strong platform with great vision for the next 20 years.

    Haramanis Tuesday, 27 March 2018 01:32 PM

    The need of the hour is to get rid of a useless, failed, spineless and aimless leader

    Richy Ponnampalam Tuesday, 27 March 2018 04:58 PM

    You cannot expect this from Ranil, he cannot do even 1% what you told as he is trapped with MR's orders.
