Alleging that the plot to assassinate President Maithripala Sirisena and former Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa was a political conspiracy, UPFA dissident and National List MP S.B. Dissanayake yesterday alleged that the UNP had a hand in it.

Addressing the media at UPFA National List MP Tilanga Sumathipala’s residence at the Ananda Rajakaruna Mawatha, Borella, Dissanayake alleged that an impartial police inquiry was unlikely as long as the UNP held the law and order portfolio.


Dissanayake said that the law and order portfolio should be brought under President Sirisena, who is also the Commander-in-Chief of the armed forces.

Dissanayake said that the assassination of President Sirisena and former Defence Secretary Rajapaksa, tipped to be the JO’s presidential candidate would be advantageous to the UNP.
