Government members to back UNP

The main opposition UNP claims several government members are in talks with the UNP to back the opposition.

UNP General Secretary Tissa Attanayake said that a Government Minister is among those in talks with him.

However Attanayake said that the names of those in the government willing to support the UNP cannot be revealed at this moment.

“Talks are going on with these government members. Ideas are being exchanged. At the right time the names will be revealed,” he said.

Attanayake said that the names cannot be revealed now as it will be too soon.

He said that the UNP is doing its part to prepare to work with these government members. (Colombo Gazette)
