Ravi to reveal all? Featured

Ex-finance minister is planning to reveal all, in the event he gets arrested over the CB bond auction scam, reports MP Wimal Weerawansa’s lankacnews.com.

He will not stand it any further, as his arrest will adversely impact his political journey, says the website.

Meanwhile, he has commented about reported recommendations by the UNP that he should be removed as deputy leader of the party, and said what was being said either by the president or the prime minister during an election time should not be taken seriously.

Karunanayake has declared on several occasions that the CB never functioned under him when he was the finance minister.

Ravi is under pressure?

Several websites have reported that after the UNP general secretary said in a statement that the MP would be removed from the deputy leader position, he was under pressure by certain politicians to come out with those responsible for the CB bond scam.

Temple Trees sources say he and premier Ranil Wickremesinghe met yesterday (31) and agreed on what should be done in this regard until the conclusion of the mini-polls.
