Colombo, 20 December, ( It has been confirmed in a report filed by the BBC Reporter over the Sinhala Radio programme –Sandeshaya, that the opposition leader Ranil Wickramasinghe has not spoken the truth.

At a meeting held on the 15th December at Sirikotha- the Party Headquarters of the United National Party, Mr.Wickramasinghe has been quoted as saying that the government was prepared to go for a ceasefire only after capturing Kilinochchi and that the government later said that it would proceed to capture Mullativu.

However the Isira Radio, a private Radio channel in Sri Lanka asked about this matter but, Mr.Wickramasinghe refuted the statement. He further said that he would issue a press statement in this regard.

The statement made by the Leader of the Opposition appeared in the Lakbima News weekly. It said that Mr.Wickramasinghe denied having made the statement. The Sri Lanka Broadcasting Corporation – the State Radio also broadcasted Mr.Wickramasinghe’s voice-cut, which was adopted from the BBC.

BBC has asserted that Mr.Wickramasinghe has not spoken the truth when the state radio challenged not to politicize the ongoing humanitarian war against terrorism and spread false rumors to the world about the war.
