Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe presided over the meeting of  UNP representatives held at Sirikotha on Thursday morning.

The future course of the party was discussed at the meeting. The Prime Minister spoke to reporters following the meeting.

“I am surprised that an elite caste system has been formed in the country”, said the Prime Minister who went on to state that whatever the caste, there is no difference.

He further pointed out that the public mandate was given to enter the parliament.

“Now what can we do, you are the ones who went behind Mahinda.Why are you still going behind him?”asked the Premier who noted that the so-called elite caste says that they are the elite, and that they need everything, and that the other “must not be given.”

“We are not ready to work as an elite caste in this parliament”, said the Prime Minister, who pointed out that the elite caste existed in the previous regime, and they ruined the country,  and now the country has to be saved from that
