Conspiracy by the Govt.: UNP
The UNP which commented on the US attempt to quiz Chief of Defence Staff Gen.Sarath Fonseka, said that it was a totally unwarranted act.
UNP General Secretary Tissa Attanayake said this could also be a conspiracy by the government to scuttle the possible plan by Gen. Fonseka to enter politics.
“It is speculated that Gen. Fonseka is planning to join politics. Earlier, many other government officials and ministers visited the US. But, they were not questioned by the US government. So, this can be part of the conspiracy hatched by the government to block Gen. Fonseka’s entry into politics,” Mr. Attanayake said.
