June 25, Colombo: Sri Lanka's Opposition and United National Party Leader Ranil Wickremasinghe will hold discussions with the religious and civil society leaders regarding the current situation.
The discussion will be held tomorrow at the parliament, the Opposition Leader's office said.
The Opposition Leader is expected to focus the discussion mainly on the clashes that took place recently between the Sinhala and Muslim residents of the Aluthgama and Beruwala towns and discuss the actions need to be taken to prevent such violence in future.
The Opposition Leader has come under criticism from many quarters for the inactivity on his part over the communal violence.
Wickremasinghe did not visit Beruwala yet although the President Mahinda Rajapaksa visited the area and discussed with people as soon as he returned from his tour in Bolivia.
However a group of UNP MPs including the chairman of the UNP Leadership Council Karu Jayasuriya, Mangala Samaraweera, and Eran Wickramaratne, visited the troubled areas on June 22 and met with the affected residents
