UNP condemns Harin's remarks about Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith
The United National Party (UNP), issuing a statement, condemned the remarks made by former UNP Parliamentarian and current Samagi Jana Balawegaya member Harin Fernando regarding the Archbishop of Colombo, Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith.
Fernando had accused Cardinal Ranjith of engaging in politics, during the period leading up to the 2019 Presidential Election.
The former MP made these claims while addressing a political rally in Medirigiriya on Saturday (20).
Meanwhile, Fernando’s party membership was also suspended by the UNP recently, for submitting nominations under another political party for the upcoming General Election, thus violating the UNP Party Constitution.
