Former President Chandrika also to get the same pension as Mahinda
A Proposal has been submitted to Parliament to increase the pension of Former President Chandrika Bandaranayaka Kumaranathunga up to 97 thousand 500 Rupees.
General Secretary of Parliament Dhammika Dasanayaka stated that the proposal will be taken up for discussion next week.
As at now Former President Kumaranathunga was entitled for a pension of only 25 thousand Rupees and there was clear difference in comparison to the figure received by Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa.
Hence a proposal has been forwarded to do away with the disparity.
