Party Leaders meet both Maithripala & Mahinda

Party leaders affiliated to the Government met former president Maithripala Sirisena last evening (21) at his former official residence and are scheduled to meet Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa today (22) in parliament for a special meeting.

They had decided to meet the Prime Minister as the President is away at the UN General Assembly in the USA.

According to sources, some party leaders have not been keen on attending the meeting.

Yesterday’s (21) discussion centred on the 40% shares of the Yugadanavi power plant being sold to an American company.

Sri Lanka Freedom Party General Secretary Dayasiri Jayasekera told media that their views will be presented to the President and Prime Minister, following discussions on the matter.
