Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe yesterday challenged all other political parties to investigate into and take action against corrupt members in their fold.

Whilst members of other political parties just speak of corruption and fraud, the United National Party, took steps to investigate into members with alleged charges of corruption and malpractice, said the Prime Minister as he asked other parties to follow suit.

The Prime Minister was speaking at a political meeting in Matale to promote UNP candidates contesting for the Local Government elections there.

“We have always stood against corruption. If our members have been found guilty of such practices, we ask them to leave. But, in other parties, even if they have thieves and corrupt politicians among them, no action is taken. They shout in Parliament. They scold the UNP. But it is only the UNP which cleans its party. There is no point in scolding the UNP when they do not clean up their own party”, said Prime Minister Wickremesinghe further.

“I ask them, do they have the courage to clean up their own party?, he added.
