Opposition and UNP Leader Ranil Wickremesighe say that he is “everybody’s leader” and that the pro-reforms group in the party was trying to create a clash at the party’s Working Committee meeting.
Wickremesinghe told the media today that the only matter to be discussed at the Working Committee would be the forthcoming local government elections.
He said the pro-reformists were trying to prevent the appointment of the nominations board for the local government elections.
He added that those who participate in the sathyagraha organized by the pro-reformists would not be considered members of the party.
Wickremesinghe observed that he is not willing to answer to accusations leveled by the reformist group.
However, Wickremesinghe said that he is every body’s leader including the ones who are criticizing him.
