Aug 17, Colombo: Leader of Sri Lanka's main opposition United National Party (UNP) Ranil Wickremasinghe has openly invited all the party members, who left the party for various reasons, to forget the past and rejoin the party and build a solidarity against the ruling party and the government.

Wickremasinghe made an open invitation to all the former party members, who left the party for various reasons, who were expelled from the party, and the members subjected to disciplinary inquiries to forget all past discontents and join the UNP again to defeat the present Rajapaksa regime.
