President Maithripala Sirisena and prime minister Ranil Wickremesinghe have met at the home of finance and media minister Mangala Samaraweera and discussed at length how to solve conflicts of opinion between the two main affiliate parties of the government, reliable sources say.

They stressed the importance of facing collectively the challenges before the government. The president raised with the PM the criticism of the SLFP by UNP general secretary Kabir Hashim and other ministers. During his visit to Bangladesh, the president inquired from minister Malik Samarawickrema about Hashim’s critical remarks at the opening of an office of Kolonnawa UNP organizer S.M. Marikkar.
Also, media has reported that a majority in the UNP has taken strong reservations to SLFP minister Dilan Perera’s having seriously criticized the UNP’s conduct. The two leaders agreed to make sure that such contradictory situations would not occur in the future, the sources add.
They also decided to be firm with regard to strikes and other acts of sabotage by the joint opposition and to create a new public confidence on the government. They also agreed to discuss with relevant state institutions how to speed up investigations into fraud, corruption and crime as promised to the public when forming the government on 08 January 2015.
