June 20, Colombo: Sri Lanka's monk party and coalition partner of Sri Lankan government, Jathika Hela Urumaya (JHU) said the party would not allow opposition leader Ranil Wickremasinghe to become the President.

Layman leader of JHU Minister Patali Champika Ranawaka said today at a press briefing that the opposition leader was dreaming to become the President of this country with the votes of the Muslims.

He further said that the JHU would not allow the opposition to march forward with the backing of foreign forces.

The Minister accused the Muslims for the violence that took place in Dharga Town in Kalutara district. Islamic Jihad organizations were behind the violence, the JHU leader charged.

Minister Ranawaka also challenged the Muslim Minister Rauf Hakeem to quit the government if he was ashamed after the communal violence in Beruwala as he stated.
