The TNA MP, Mawai Senathyrasa has expressed dissatisfaction over allocating 250 Million for Defense in 2018, which is equivalent to the allocation during the war period.
We placed several proposals including reconstruction of the North and East which had been devastated by war, Livelihood employment for woman leadership families, employment. The allocation for them are not satisfactory.
We shall meet the president on his return to adjust the allocations to N & E and will express our condemnation of more allocation to Defense. If the needs of the N & E are not fulfilled we will no other choice other than opposing the Budget.
