Former deputy minister Vinayagamurthi Muralitharan alias Karuna Amman met with UPFA general secretary Mahinda Amaraweera late at night on the same day he entered into a MoU with Basil Rajapaksa’s Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna, reliable sources told us.

The meeting came as Karuna Amman’s party, Tamil United
Freedom Front, has agreed to ally with the SLPP.

At this secret discussion, he has spoken to president Maithripala Sirisena over the phone as well, according to the sources.
