* Councilors of Sri Lanka's North Central Provincial Council seek police protection
Mon, Nov 12, 2012, 10:44 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Nov 12, Anuradhapura: A proposal to seek police protection for the councilors of the North Central Provincial Council will be taken up for debate at the Provincial Council meeting scheduled to be held on November 14th.

The proposal brought by Councilor Sarath Illangasinghe was severely criticized by the Marxist party Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) Provincial Councilor Wasantha Samarasinghe. He has said the move is a waste of public money.

Samarasinghe has pointed out that it would also be a bad example that would be followed by other Provincial Councils as well.

The radical politician has questioned from whom the Provincial Councilors needed to be protected.

However, the major opposition United National Party (UNP) group leader of the Northern Provincial Council Chandima Mahindasoma has said that the party would take a decision following discussions.

The Chief Ministers of the Provincial Councils are provided with police security.
