* Sri Lanka Opposition Leader to visit areas affected by communal violence
Sat, Jun 28, 2014, 11:29 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

June 28, Colombo: Sri Lanka's main opposition United National Party (UNP) leader and Opposition Leader Ranil Wickremasinghe has scheduled a visit to the Beruwala, Aluthgama and Dharga Town areas which were recently affected by communal violence.

The Opposition Leader's visit is scheduled to take place on June 29th.

He has planned to attend the religious observances at the Kande Vihara Temple and meet the people and religious leaders at Adhikarigoda mosque and two other Buddhist temples, party sources say.

Before that, he will also participate in the Galle district UNP federation which is held in the house of former UNP Galle District parliamentarian Vajira Abeywardena.

Wickremasinghe was criticized by some sections for not visiting the violence- stricken areas immediately after the riots. 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.

The Sri Lankan Army meanwhile has begun the restoration of the properties damaged by the communal clashes..
