 The FB post by the Chief of the private staff of Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe titled, ‘Massive conspiracy on April 12 at Hilton to make Sajith Prime Minister’ was a decisive juncture in the UNP presidential fight, according to the party’s internal sources.

The FB post was by Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe’s niece Ishini Wickremesinghe, where she had quoted a report published on a web site.

According to the report a secretive meeting had been held at the Hilton Hotel on April 12 and Finance Minister Mangala Samaraweera had also attended this meeting.
