0 2

The Lekhakadikari of the Asgiriya Chapter Ven. Dr. Medagama Dhammananda Thera said that it is apparent that there is a political hand behind the continuous agitations and strikes that are oppressing the people.

The Thera said that although there is no argument that the Government employees should receive a fair salary for living, they should also think about the economic situation and public well-being before taking protest actions.

The Thera told the above to MP Prof. G. L. Peiris when the latter called on him in Kandy yesterday.

The Thera went on to say that the health, education and transportation sectors directly affect the people’s daily activities and those engaged in such protest actions should understand that the people’s lives will be disturbed due to their actions.

The Thera also emphasised that the Government may have to increase taxes further to find the money to increase salaries of the protesting state workers.

He said that the taxes imposed on goods and services will heap more burdens on the self-employed as well as on the people who do daily jobs and those who are doing Government jobs and protesters should also think about these things.
