Parliament Nov. 28 (Daily Mirror)- Opposition Leader Sajith Premadasa said he invited former sports minister Roshan Ranasinghe to the Opposition Leader's office to discuss removing Sri Lanka's cricket ban and not for any political conspiracy.

The Opposition Leader told Parliament that he was having a discussion with the Indian High Commissioner and that he invited Roshan Ranasinghe also to the occasion to see if there are any possibilities of getting the intervention of the High Commissioner to remove the ban on Sri Lanka Cricket.

"I discussed with the Indian High Commissioner and Roshan Ranasinghe to remove the cricket ban and not to plan any political conspiracy. Roshan Ranasinghe is now accused of meeting the Opposition Leader. The other Cabinet Ministers also come and meet me. They do not come to engage in any political conspiracies," he said.

    You once again proved yourself as a fragile leader. Why did you crouch in front of an Indian diplomat to lift the ICC ban? You are endorsing the ICC and Indian Cricket Council. You are not fit to rule an independent nation

    ohh really how stupid you are to talk about the opposition leader who was elected by the people of the country. talk about pin Janapathi

    So each side should not speak to each other but Ranil quite happy to hobnob with the Rajapakses. He met Basil and that was ok but others should not. What stupidity and hypocrisy.

    The ban can only be lifted by ICC. Indian High Commissioners and local ministers cannot remove bans. With ICC it is not who you know, it is how you play the game (of cricket)!

    Bandu Tuesday, 28 November 2023 02:57 PM

    With ICC is not who you know but just what BCCI wants. With the huge surplus funds and knowing they have largest spectators to draw the advertisers, BCCI controls everything. that is why our President spoke and apologised to a lowly individual called Jay Shah the Secretary. Would a President of a country speak to a common man in a foreign country and apologise.

    The opposition leader is a clueless character. He cannot get anything done.

    Please don’t get involved in sport. Yes you are not capable of running a bath. Just stay at home

    What bloody political conspiracy when the Parliament passed the motion unanimously about the SLC. All Ranil backers voted for it

    Indrajith Tuesday, 28 November 2023 04:08 PM

    SP has been an instigator and trouble maker in the SLC drama for cheap political manoeuvre and gain. He misjudged both.

    Foomy Mohamed Tuesday, 28 November 2023 05:02 PM

    Yes....SP to be the future PRESIDENT, but not the people make anti comments in this page.

    OH FOR SURE !

    What you are doing now is called political interference don't you understand after being qualified in UK. You and your corrupted members of Parliament as whole never ever going to reform. You cannot bluf ICC, decision was taken after many years careful watch.
