Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa’s military security will be replaced with police personnel by this afternoon, Mr. Rajapaksa's media unit said.
They said that 50 of 102 security detail, which included five Army Majors and 45 Commandos, would be replaced with four Sub Inspectors and 46 Police Constables.
“Though there are 102 personnel in the security detail, only 50 of them provide security while others carry out clerical and other tasks,” the media unit said.

Even this is too much for MR, having said this; he need not to worry as God will protect him as God doesnt wanna kill him but ridicule him more and more.

Since this is only a replacement of personnel.I do notthink the expenses could be reduced.

If 102 military personnel is the current number one can imagine how many when he was with unlimited power? Imagine the cist per day?

Why MR cannot live in peace as a general public... then LTTE or any other criminals will not harm him.When there is power then only outsiders will attack, if no power then no one will attack.. simple as that...

102 for an ex president security. What a waste of public funds. Lucky the President changes only 4 to 8 years. If it was an annual ritual, the VAT will have to be increased to 20%. Time to get away with the money eating Presidency.

Good move to reduce wastage of peoples money.

Yes that's enough for an MP. If he had retired and stayed athome like the former Presidents, he would have got all the regard and respect.
