Discussions between the UPFA Chief Ministers and former President Mahinda Rajapaksa had been concluded without any agreement reaching upon.

Chief Ministers of six Provinces representing the SLFP outside the North and East met former President Mahinda Rajapaksa today at his official residence at Wijerama Mawatha, Colombo to discuss the strategies for the restoration of unity among party circles before the upcoming Local Government and Provincial Council elections.

However, North Central Chief Minister Peshala Jayarathna did not participate at the meeting. Central Province Chief Minister Sarath Ekanayake said that Prof. G.L Peiris, Bandula Gunawardena, Gamini Lokuge, Johnston Fernando and Prasanna Ranatunga also participated the meeting with former President.

“We have discussed several matters, including present situation at the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP). We couldn’t come to an agreement with former President and other members during today’s meeting. They had not agree with this government’s policy. However the discussion ended leaving room for further meetings,” he said.

He said President Maithripala Sirisena had been informed about the meeting and said they would brief the President regarding the outcome of the meeting.

The Western Province Chief Minister Isura Devapriya said that the meeting was successful, but failed to reach an agreement saying that such issues could not be sorted out with just one meeting. He also stated that more discussions between the two parties will be held in the future as well. The participants earlier said the motive of the discussion was to once again unite the Sri Lanka Freedom Party.

However, the Members of the Joint Opposition who also participated the meeting said that they cannot reach an agreement till they agree to form a SLFP led Government.
