Gotabaya meets Ranil at Temple Trees


Former Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa has met with UNP leader Ranil Wickremesinghe at Temple Trees.

Rajapaksa had called on Wickremesinghe last night to reportedly discuss future security measures should the latter leave the premises of Temple Trees.

Ranil Wickremesinghe has resisted moves to evict him from his official residence following his shock dismissal as Prime Minister that has plunged the island nation into constitutional turmoil.

Ranil Wickremesinghe, whose security and official cars were also withdrawn, insists his dismissal was illegal and demanded an emergency session to prove he still commanded a majority.
