The motive behindaThe meeting between Ranil and Mahinda, is to discuss about the country’s economy and its challenges, says the media unit of the Prime Minister.
There is a clue that the Presidential Election would be held at the end of the year and some one can speculate that this meeting would be regarding that issue. Eventhough the President Maithreepala Sirisena says that he has not decided to contest yet the senior leaders of SLFP hint that their Presidential candidate is Maithreepala Sirisena. So far Mahinda fraction has not declared their candidate but Gothabhaya Rajapaksha try to say that he is ready for contesting. However in the UNP, a lot of unpears thinking their candidate is Ranil. Under this situation, what crisis Mahinda Rajapaksha pressuring is, to evade this time without defeating with an eye to come back later when the condition is positive for him or to present a weak candidate to get defeated the election. But such a defeat woud be not favourable for the next parliament election. Therefore, amidst of this complex situation, both Ranil and Mahinda friendship meeting like this, would disply whether they are genuinely going to combine or just for the political gimmick.
