Minister of Home Affairs Vajira Abeywardena said that facts will be submitted to the Cabinet of Ministers about providing duty free vehicle permits to one group and not providing duty free vehicle permits to another group of Provincial Councillors.   

This decision has been taken by the Minister at a meeting held recently in “Suhuru Paya” building in Battaramulla with the Forum of United National Party Provincial Councillors.   
Provincial Councillors have requested to provide duty free vehicle permits to all of them as vehicle permits have been issued to two Provincial Councillors of Southern Provincial Council, one Councillor in Sabaragamuwa Provincial Council, some provincial councillors in Eastern Provincial Council and Provincial Councillors of Northern Provincial Council, and the Forum has informed that there are 110 new faces in the Provincial Councils.
