The expenditure head for the defence ministry under the 2021 budget was passed in Parliament with 132 votes in favour and 5 votes against on Thursday.
Opening the debate, opposition parliamentarian Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka, urged the government to uplift the tri-forces and to provide them with advanced equipment.
Our Army is equipped with tanks that were used in 1955 during the 2nd world war. The Air Force does not have combat aircraft,” Fonseka, a former army commander said.
