JO seeks enhanced security for Mahinda


JO Leader Dinesh Gunawardena has requested the government to provide enhanced security for former President Mahinda Rajapaksa since he is scheduled to attend meetings during campaigns for the forthcoming local government election.

Issuing a special statement in the House, Dinesh Gunawardena said: " The Joint Opposition is planning to hold political rallies countrywide in the coming weeks. Former president of this country Mahinda Rajapaksa would attend all those rallies. The number of personnel attached to his security contingent is not enough. There should be more personnel to guard the buffer zone immediately opposite the stages to ensure the former President's protection. I would like to know from the government and the Prime Minister whether they can provide enough vehicles, personnel and facilities needed for the former President."
