Wickremesinghe on two-day visit to India

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 28 December 2010, 23:05 GMT]
Sri Lanka's Opposition Leader, Ranil Wickremesinghe left for India on the 27th of December, and has planned to stay there for two days, the Sinhala daily Lankadeepa said. Wickremesinghe met with members of trade unions and the business community in Sri Lanka before he left for India, according to the paper.

Soon after his return from India, the UNP has planned to hold a series of anti-government protests, and speculation is rife that this visit has some connection to the forthcoming actions planned by the opposition party.

Incidentally, Wickremesinghe left on the same day India's Defence Secretary Pradeep Kumar arrived in Colombo on a three day official visit.

A seven member delegation accompanied the Indian Defense Secretary.
