COLOMBO (News 1st) – The National Organisation to Protect the United National Party convened a media briefing, today (May 3).

Speaking at the media briefing the National Organiser to Protect the UNP, S. R. M. Wickremesinghe, spoke on the recent statement made by MP Hirunika Premachandra, regarding a group of parliamentarians who have become frustrated about the actions of the UNP.

S. R. M. Wickremesinghe said the General Secretary appointed by the present leadership announced MP Premachandra would face a disciplinary inquiry. He went onto note that he condemns the decision made by the General Secretary.

He said: “You are not here to take disciplinary action when an MP exercises her democratic right and speaks about the flaws of the leadership. We issue a challenge.”

Wickremesinghe also spoke about the former general secretary’s promise of 100,000 jobs.
