Mon, Sep 1, 2014, 12:33 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Sept 01, Colombo: Chief ministerial candidate of Sri Lanka main opposition United National Party (UNP) for Uva Province Harin Fernando said Sunday that his meeting with the Hambantota District parliamentarian and President's son Namal Rajapaksa was a chance encounter and not a planned one.

Speaking to local media Harin Fernando who resigned from parliament to contest as the chief minister candidate for the Uva Province, said the meeting with Namal Rajapaksa was not a secret as reported by certain media.

Fernando has said that he met MP Rajapaksa at MP Chamika Buddhadasa's house in public and had tea with him but they did not have any secret discussion. He said his meeting with the MP did not even last five minutes.

Sri Lankan media reported last week that the UNP Chief Minister candidate had had secret talks with MP Namal Rajapaksa.
