A group of UNP MPs were seen at Tourism and Widlife Minister Wasantha Senanayake’s Colombo residence. The group of MPs was led by UNP Colombo District Parliamentarian Ravi Karunanayake. who later joined the UNP party leaders meeting.
The MPs had visited Senanayake’s house after 118 Paeliamentarians supported a motion claiming former President Mahinda Rajapaksa’s appointment as the Prime Minister was unconstitutional and unacceptable.
Their aim was to convince the crossover MP to support Ranil Wickremesinghe again. ,meanwhile there has been speculation that Ravi K him self may crossover as he is facing chargers after testifying at the bond scam commission.
Ravi k is said to have made cretin initial moves with Basil Rajapaksha to create the crisis by promising potential cross overs from the Diyawaana palace.
Senanayake switched allegiance earlier this week and pledged support to President Maithripala Sirisena and his new Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa.
