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)
