Helicopter For Ranil

President Mahinda Rajapaksa has assured his political arch-rival, Ranil Wickremesinghe that he will look into a request made by the United National Party (UNP) to make available a helicopter for Wickremesinghe’s election campaign in the Eastern Province.

The assurance was given when Wickremesinghe met Rajapaksa at a weeding. Wickremesinghe had lamented the Defence Ministry’s refusal to provide him with a helicopter for a four-day election campaign, to be carried out in view of the May 10 Eastern Province Provincial Council Elections.
