UNP Chairman tore MoU copy with SLFP into pieces

[TamilNet, Sunday, 28 January 2007, 18:21 GMT]
Rukman Senanayake, Chairman of the main opposition United National Party (UNP) at a news briefing held Sunday afternoon publicly tore a copy of the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed by the UNP with the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP), main constituent of the United Peoples Freedom Alliance (UPFA) government. He said the MoU with the SLFP is no more in operation.

Tissa Attanayake, UNP General Secretary said President Mahinda Rajapakse should take the responsibility for the abrogation of the MoU signed by his party and SLFP in October last year. " The UNP will function in parliament as a full-fledged opposition party," said Tissa Attanayake

Tilak Karunaratne, Treasure of the party said no purpose would be served anymore in holding the MoU when the government offered ministerial posts dissidents of the party.

Meanwhile Ranil Wickremasinghe, leader of the UNP arrived in New Delhi Sunday after a two-day stay in Katmandu, capital of Nepal.
