The main opposition UNP today sacked several of its Provincial Council (PC) members, most of who had campaigned against UNP leader Ranil Wickremesinghe.

The UNP working committee had decided to remove outspoken UNP provincial council members Maithri Gunaratne and Shiral Lakthilake as well as at least eight others on disciplinary grounds.

All the PC members were sacked over their alleged involvement with the attack on the UNP headquarters at Sirikotha in 2011.

Before and after the attack, Maithri Gunaratne and Shiral Lakthilake had publicly spoken against the UNP leader and called for his removal from the party leadership post. (Colombo Gazette)
