PM says no decision on extra facilities for RW
Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa says no decision has been taken to give former Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe extra facilities.
He said that Wickremesinghe had sought extra facilities, including more security, as a former Prime Minister.
Rajapaksa said that no decision had been taken on the request.
However, he said Wickremesinghe will need extra security from his own party members.
Rajapaksa was responding to a question raised at a meeting with electronic media heads today.
The Sunday Morning yesterday(19) revealed that Wickremesinghe has requested President Gotabaya Rajapaksa for a host of privileges in his capacity as the former Prime Minister.
The requests include a fully equipped office building, an official residence, a security team, and staff.
A letter to this effect had been sent to President Rajapaksa a few weeks back by the former Prime Minister.
