November 02, 2018

UNP Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe's wife, Prof. Maithree Wickremasinghe, has intervened last night to cancel a dinner organized for the UNP Parliamentary group at Temple Trees by insisting that all MPs eat the same 'Buth packets (බත් පැකට්)' distributed to 5,000-odd supporters gathered at the Temple Trees premises.

A UNP Parliamentarian had sponsored the dinner for all MPs gathered at the official residence of the Prime Minister in support of Ranil Wickremesinghe. 

Prof. Wickremasinghe had intervened to cancel the dinner stating no Parliamentarian should get better meals than the ordinary supporters protecting the party leader. 

Asian Mirror learns that Prof. Wickremasinghe walked into a meeting of a UNP MP group to ensure the cancellation of the dinner. 

It is also learnt that the  UNP MPs had commended Prof. Wickremasighe's effort and complied with her request. 

She was also seen at the forefront of the protest organized by the UNP supporters, earlier this week, outside Temple Trees.
