EC Chairman says: Did not tell any institution not to distribute Rs 5,000 allowance

Election Commission Chairman Mahinda Deshapriya said he has not informed any institution not to distribute the Rs 5,000 allowance to people affected due to the COVID-19 pandemic, for June.

However, he added that since allegations have been levelled that this matter has turned into something political in nature, he requested that relevant officials be informed not to allow the distribution of this allowance to facilitate the promotion of any political party or candidate.
