The UNP has decided to suspend talks with the government on constitutional reforms claiming that the government was using the talks to draw opposition members to the government side.

A top UNP source said that the talks between UNP leader Ranil Wickremesinghe and President Mahinda Rajapaksa held recently on constitutional reforms, though successful, will not continue further.

The UNP alleges that the government had roped in opposition members Prabha Ganeshan and P. Digambaram by using the talks as a tool and is now attempting to seek the support of more opposition members in order to secure the two thirds majority in Parliament. (Daily Mirror online)

    RW ur not mature enough to understand MR’s political tactics. Pls. Go home without putting UNP in trouble any more.

    steve Saturday, 07 August 2010 12:15 PM

    RW. If you sit with dogs, you wake up with flies!

    dass Saturday, 07 August 2010 12:24 PM

    No talks. Do work UNP is capable of doing. Do some work that government in power can not do.
    Stand for the rights of the people who are treated as animals.

    flemiya Saturday, 07 August 2010 01:23 PM

    Ranil's hobby is fooling UNPers and producing funny stuff in the meantime for our enjoyment. Pls let this bloke to be in the leadership guys !!!!

    SW Saturday, 07 August 2010 01:28 PM

    Ranil is a gentleman with no brains and self interest.

    gona Saturday, 07 August 2010 01:58 PM

    1st replace the leader, otherwise same tune for more 20 years.

    Girigoris Saturday, 07 August 2010 03:48 PM

    Ohoma yang!

    sujeeva Saturday, 07 August 2010 04:18 AM

    Didn't the same thing happen the last time UNP had talks with MR....when will they ever learn

    Saliya Wickramasuriy Saturday, 07 August 2010 04:30 AM

    Ranil is yet to see the craftiness of the government.

    Arun Saturday, 07 August 2010 05:05 AM

    Mr.RW you won't learn learnt from the past,same thing happened when you talked before .it seems too late for you

    Senior Citizen Saturday, 07 August 2010 05:31 AM

    I don't want credit, but everyone other than Ranil & some stupid UNPers knew this outcome. They only wanted to draw attention from crisis in UNP against Ranil. It backfired.

    mangala Saturday, 07 August 2010 05:53 AM

    RW as usual lost to MR!

    Rawana Saturday, 07 August 2010 05:58 AM

    This is Ranil. He knows how to handle matters in gentleman way. If he did not had talks with MR, government would have blamed opposition for not supporting for a solution.

    Ranjana Saturday, 07 August 2010 06:18 AM

    Ranil shows that he is no leader, and very foolish,is unable to fathom the shrewed moves of this cunning president

    harris Saturday, 07 August 2010 06:37 AM

    Rawana - what solution are you talking about ?

    Chand Saturday, 07 August 2010 06:43 AM

    Ranil, you have no choice!!

    SW Saturday, 07 August 2010 06:48 AM

    Everyone accept Ranil knew that this was MR's plan. Ranil fell for it since he saw this as an opportunity become Opposition Leader for life.

    Lanka suraya Saturday, 07 August 2010 06:49 AM

    Too late sir, you are already outplayed

    sham Saturday, 07 August 2010 06:52 AM

    RW be careful, MR will do whatever he wants, to secure his party and presidency

    Padikaramaduwa, G Saturday, 07 August 2010 07:07 AM

    Just think of the country, not the party

    I Hussein Saturday, 07 August 2010 07:16 AM

    Rawana - Sadly our dumb public dont even understand that, so how will they understand RW's policies. U are damn right mate.

    Justitia Omnibus Saturday, 07 August 2010 07:18 AM

    This exercise in the chickens consulting with Colonel Sanders on the sanctity of avian life might even have had a worse outcome!

    I Hussein Saturday, 07 August 2010 07:23 AM

    You all are so immature to understand RW. He is way ahead of you guys.

    Man B Saturday, 07 August 2010 07:46 AM

    Mr.Ranil Please get down from the party leadership.
