General Secretary, Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP), Maithiripala Sirisena and the General Secretary of Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP), Tilvin Silva held special talks last week on issues related to the current political situation in Sri Lanka and the political actions to be taken in the future, political sources in Colombo said. The talks had taken place only between the general secretaries of the two political parties, the sources added.

It is also said that Basil Rajapakse, the brother and senior advisor to President Mahinda Rajapakse, had held several talks with the JVP parliamentarian, Anurakumara Disanayake prior to the special talks mentioned above.

The possibility of JVP joining UNP in support of the common candidate in the presidential election may have triggered the special talks between the two general secretaries, the sources said.
