Opposition Leader and Leader of UNP Ranil Wickremesighe today requested the government to bring a new pension scheme for the private sector. Mr. Wickremsighe made this point when he met some trade union representatives at the UNP Head Quarters, Sirikotha today. Mr. Wickremsighe said the pension scheme proposed by the government violates the rights of the workers. (YP)

We do not want any pension scheme.. DO NOT TOUCH OUR HARD EARNED EPF & ETF DEPOSITS, for all the MPs lavish expenses..

Sounds like an old communist theory: grab whatever the citizen has and then pay him little by little whilst enjoying the capital for various needs and extravagance of the political elite. It is great that even ordinary people have seen through this "daylight robbery" by the rulers.

If they want to pay pension its fine, but pay the EPF & ETF to the employees first and start your so called pension scheme.

Ranil will go on pension...if he is given a new pension scheme !

Before anything else we should send ranil on retirement (and give him a pension). If not he will burn the UNP to the ground. Ranil is a really an agent of MR to destroy the UNP.

with or without a pension scheme we want you to retire. We want a strong UNP, either in power or in the opposition. A UNP with a back bone and a strong leader, not a ponna leader

If government want to pay pension to the private employee it should great a fund it own and pay the pension. If the government pob the EPF and ETF of the employee and pay litile by litilr their money is not to call pension.It should be call as instulment payment of EPF and ETF.Possibly take the balance in to government fund.Please don't call this Pension.
