Addressing a media conference today Wickremasinghe said he would have gone to Medamulana if he wanted to learn about corruption and terror.

He said that he went to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the US to teach and learn methods to develop the country.

"I wanted to learn how to set up a UNP government and develop the country," Wickremasinghe said adding that he was not concerned about constructing new roads and ports rather making the best use of the existing one.

According to the UNP Leader, he had discussed about the alternatives that could be introduced after scrapping the executive

He said the country needs proper governance and if not the whole country will have to suffer the negative consequences.

The UNP Leader also said that people in Sri Lanka, especially the youth have no confidence in the current parliamentarians and in a future UNP government all MPs will be required to receive higher education either within the country or abroad.
