Sampanthan finally gets official residence! Featured

Leader of the opposition and the TNA R. Sampanthan has been given the official residence at Colombo 07 high security zone occupied by former prime minister Rathnasiri Wickremanayake before his death.

Minister Vajira Abeywardena’s public administration ministry has mediated to grant the house to the opposition leader.

The TNA says its leader has been given an official residence that suits his age and position and he will come to occupy it after effecting minor repairs.

Sampanthan has been given an official residence only after 1 ½ years after he was appointed the opposition leader.

Until then, he lived at a small house at Summit Flats in Colombo.
