President Maithripala Sirisena is reportedly not in agreement with the move to purchase a bullet proof vehicle for the use of Opposition Leader Mahinda Rajapaksa.
Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe submitted a Cabinet paper last week seeking approval to purchase such a vehicle based on a request by the Opposition Leader's Office.
However, the Cabinet paper was differed for this week amid reservations expressed by Finance Minister Mangala Samaraweera.
This matter was not taken up for discussion by the Cabinet yesterday.(Kelum Bandara)
