Arjuna claims talks underway for some SLFPers to back Sajith

United National Front (UNF) Parliamentarian and Transport Minister Arjuna Ranatunga today claimed that talks are underway to secure the support of some Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) members for UNF Presidential candidate Sajith Premadasa.

Speaking at an election rally in Nittambuwa today, Ranatunga said that the real SLFPers will emerge in a few days.

He said that they will extend support to Premadasa and protect the future of the SLFP.

The SLFP has already signed an agreement with the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) to extend support to SLPP Presidential candidate Gotabaya Rajapaksa.
