Sat, Nov 3, 2018, 09:43 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Nov 03, Colombo: United National Party (UNP) parliamentarian Palitha Range Bandara today revealed to media evidence of certain United People's Freedom Alliance (UPFA) members involved in attempts to bribe members of the UNP.

Speaking at a media briefing held at the Temple Trees this evening, MP Range Bandara made public, telephone conversations he had with officials working under the de facto government headed by Mahinda Rajapaksa who was appointed as the Prime Minister after ousting the elected Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe.

MP Range Bandara released to the media the audio recordings of the conversation he had with government MP SB Dissanayake who had offered him a cabinet position to crossover.

In the tape it can be heard that a voice is advising the MP to crossover soon before it is too late to get a cabinet post since only 30 cabinet ministers can be appointed in the new government.
