Mr. Withana who led the press conference alleged that current UNP Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe had got into a deal with the government to safeguard the corrupt and to safeguard those who are accused of the Bond scam. “Mr. Wickremesinghe together with the Rajapaksas are trying to defend those who are accused of the bond scam,” Mr. Withana said.
