A future UNP government would give Rs.10,000 salary increment to public servants and Rs.2000 increment for pensioners until anomalies were resolved, United National Party (UNP) National Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe said today in Kotte.

 

Speaking at a party meeting in Sri Jayawardenepura Kotte today, he said a future UNP government would come out with a bonanza for the people.


He said a future UNP government would purchase Samba rice at Rs. 50 a kilogramme and Nadu rice at Rs. 45 a kilogramme.

 

He also said that a litre of petrol would be reduced by Rs. 50 while diesel would be reduced by Rs. 15. (Yohan Perera)

    When this offer was made originally by SF, our MR promised Rs.2500/- instead. That promise is yet to be fulfilled.

    Yes the salary increase will be welcomed by all public servants,and lowering of the petrol and diesel prices.The masses are overloaded.You can do the job if you get the full support of the people.But it seems a bit far away stillbecause of not being able to win the war during your prime ministership.Apparently it seems LTTE leader prabhakaran preferred you to the present president that time during the election

    What we need right now is a sincere leader to lead the country. We are at lock ahead with most of the leading countries, specially with whole ofEurope, US and Canada and not that close with India as well because of our close relationship with communist China. This situation should improve for SL to be recognized as a developing country. Ranil will have the minority votes even without discussions with the political votes.as both communities are hurt with govt. actions. How long can the people tolerate Thuggery, Intimidation and sky rocketing foodprices.
