Some Parliamentarians have been warned of possible attacks on Monday May 13, Opposition leader Mahinda Rajapaksa said today.
He told Parliament that the security officers of some Parliamentarians have received intelligence reports of such an attack taking place on Monday.
Rajapaksa questioned the decision to reopen schools if there is still uncertainty over national security.
He said that most MPs have not sent their children to school as there is still a fear of more attacks taking place after the Easter Sunday attacks.
Rajapaksa said that the lives of children must not be taken lightly.
“These children are not bullet proof,” he said.
He said that while politicians may have bullet proof vehicles ordinary children do not.
Rajapaksa said that a clear division between the President and Prime Minister has added to the uncertainty over security in the country. (Colombo Gazette)
