Feb 03, Colombo: Opposition Leader and National Leader of Sri Lanka's main opposition United National Party (UNP), Ranil Wickremasinghe has challenged President Mahinda Rajapaksa to come for an open debate on the crises faced by the country.
Wickremasinghe addressing a meeting of UNP organizers in Godakawela has said that he could prove to the people that the President has already electrocuted the masses given the problems faced by the country.
He said the government has sent the public to the electric chair with the burning issues.
The Opposition Leader said he could prove to the people the failures of the government from its inability to arrest the rising cost of living, collapse in the free health and education sectors and the deterioration in law and order and democracy in the country.
Wickremasinghe added that he hopes the President would accept his challenge.
