The UNP working committee decided today against supporting the government's devolution package. Mr. Ranil Wickremesinghe said "the package has gone to where Princes Diana is."
The UNP, accroding to party sources, will come up with an alternative proposal which emphasise centralisation with power sharing with the minorities at the centre.
The UNP has said that it will not grant any devolution beyond that envisaged in the 13th amendment.
