0 2

President Ranil Wickremesinghe told the Cabinet of Ministers yesterday that the salaries of all Government employees will be increased through the upcoming Budget.

The President further stated that a request will be made to the private sector to increase the salaries of employees as well, in line with the salary increase given to the public sector. The President had stated this during the weekly Cabinet of Ministers’ meeting held at the President’s Office yesterday.

The President had emphasized that although some political elements were trying to showcase a salary increase will be done due to the pressure they have exerted, such stories were baseless and false.

He said, at all times when the cost of living goes up the Government tries to mitigate its effects by providing people with salary increases and other concessions. Raising salaries when the Cost of Living is high has always been a policy of the present Government, the President said. The President’s third Budget proposals are scheduled to be submitted to Parliament on November 13.
