A group of United National Party (UNP) members are secretly planning to support the Government to obtain a two thirds majority in Parliament, claimed Tamil Progressive Alliance leader, Mano Ganesan.
He revealed this while commenting on the leadership crisis in the UNP.
Recalling a statement made by MP Navin Dissanayake, that minor political Parties in the United National Front (UNF) and the UNP should contest the forthcoming General Election separately, Ganesan said that if they were to do so, the Government would win.
He further added that UNP leader Ranil Wickremesinghe did not bother to correct Dissanayake’s statement.
He added that certain members in the UNP had secretly conspired with the Government and it would create the environment for the minor political Parties to have open discussions with the Government.
He also said that if the UNP would not take a decision on these matters before 16 January, the results could be disastrous.
