Former Government gives luxury residence in Colombo 7 for Sampanthan
The previous government had taken a decision to allow former Opposition Leader R. Sampanthan to use his official residence in Mahagamasekara Mawatha, Colombo further so long as he remains the leader of the Tamil National Alliance (TNA).
The official residence locate on B 12 , Mahagamasekera Mawatha in Colombo 7 has been allocated to him through a Cabinet decision .
Then, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Gayantha Karunathillake had submitted the Cabinet paper on February 26, this year seeking approval to allow this house to be used by Mr. Sampanthan as long as he is the TNA leader. The house is located on a land of one and half acres in extent. Five workers have been assigned for maintenance of this house . They are paid by the Parliamentary Affairs Ministry. It was first assigned to him as the Opposition Leader in 2015. In 2017, the government had spent Rs. 35 million for its renovation. Mr. Karunatilake submitted this Cabinet paper seeking approval for such housing facilities for Mr. Sampanthan in recognition of his contribution to national reconciliation.
The Cabinet paper had been put forward at the request of Speaker Karu Jayasuriya. Approval had been granted in the same Cabinet paper for the allocation of vehicles KX 2330 and KO 6339 along with a fuel quota of 600 litres.
The Ministers of the present government say that the government provides houses for retired Presidents and their spouses, but not for the former opposition leaders. They say this will set a bad precedent as a result.

That is outright bribery.
Mr Sampanth should go back to live in his flat in Anderson Flats.
This Cabinet Paper should be reversed.
Mr Samapanthan should live in the Shores of Nandi Kadal where 40,000 of his followers were genocided in 2009.
No Problem folks. All so call Tamil Leaders traditionally live in Colombo (some even in Colombo. 7). Ironically these guys have duel nationality and even during the LTTE terror war, they lived in Colombo. Remember TULF leader Late Amirthalingam was gunned down by LTTE in Colombo. So, let them live there because they love the majority (Sinhala) and fool their folks in the North to have the fun.
It does no matter where we live; our hearts are in Tamil Eeelam.
For example, see Mr Wigneswaran, former CM of NPC.
He lives in C7, worked in SL Judicial System as a Judge for > 40 years; two sons married into leading Simhala Buddhist Political leader’s families.
But, Wicky has shown that he an Ealamist at heart.
So Amarakoon, make sure your bottoms is clean before you make irresponsible conclusions.
Let me tell you one thing Thuleepan Somasundaram. There want be a shit Tamil Eeelam or what ever. Forget this idea and live like a good little obedient doggy.
My respected friend Mr. T. S’Sundara, Thank you for your response and worrying about my bottom. But the bottom line is: 1. You are boasting Viggi is living in Colombo. 7 ;
2. All of a sudden Singhala Buddhist (racist) females became good for Viggi’s sons. I think this is because Living in Colombo .7 and marrying to Sinhala Buuddhist women is a status symbol and poor Tamils will be voting for these Vellala Sahibs! That is the bottom line I guess!!
Known strategy of many LTTE Elamists is to marry Sinhala Buddhist women in order to dilute the Sinhala community and its heritage.
Another strategy is to infiltrate the more political families in order to exert influence.
Perhaps this is why Wiggy has instructed his sons to do the same, in spite of his anti-Sinhala stance.
