Leader of the House Minister Dinesh Gunawardena on Wednesday stated that the privileges granted to former Opposition Leader and Leader of the Tamil National Alliance (TNA), R. Sampanthan will not be taken away.

He assured that no action will be taken to reclaim the house that was given to him by the previous government and that all privileges will be given to him on the advice of President Gotabhaya Rajapaksa and Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa.

Minister Gunawardena made this statement responding to a question raised by TNA leader R. Sampanthan. Dinesh Gunawardena said:

“The government says it has the highest regard for MP R. Sampanthan and will not withdraw facilties made available to him. During the presidency of Mahinda Rajapaksa, maximum security had been provided to Sampanthan and all the members of parliament from the Northern Province.

Sampanthan’s statement shows that we have not been politically biased in any of these decisions. We will continue to adhere to that and if any facilities that have been provided as a result of the office one holds it’s up to any of the relevant former ministers, deputy ministers or the former leader of the opposition to decide in accordance with the normal procedure.

We honor you. We will not remove anything or retake any privilege given to you The President and the Prime Minister have instructed us to provide you with all the facilities you need.”
