    Whatever, PMD's excuses were, allocation of such a massive amount of money to President at this moment of time is not acceptable, because his tenure ends in a few days, and he should have asked the allocation only for the exact number of days. This is public money and no one is allowed to ask public money as they wish basis.

    President Maithirpala Sirisena should show his gratitude to Prime Minister Ranil Wickremasinghe, as without PM he could not have become a president of Sri Lanka in the year 2015. Now he enjoying such benefits through the title "President".
