The post of Opposition Leader was not discussed during the meeting held between Tamil National Alliance (TNA) Leader R. Sampanthan and Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa, the TNA said yesterday.   
In a statement, it said Mr. Sampanthan met Mr. Rajapaksa on the request of the latter at his residence at Wijerama Mawatha in Colombo 7.   

“Mr. Sampanthan did not meet Mr. Rajapaksa in any other capacity. No matter was discussed at this meeting pertaining to the post of the Leader of the Opposition. Any statement to that effect is deliberately false,” the party said.
