    Don't go further just simple calculation.
    Coconut was Rs.30
    Now Rs 55
    So 30 days 30 coconut 30 x 25 =750/-
    Are we going to get this in side the salary?

    All the Ministers like Keheliya Rabuk.behave like jokers when the government from time to time changes its colour like the chameleon. In one way they also deserve for they have lost their independence in thinking as responsible minister and on the contrary they are ever desirous to blow the trumpet of praising the president and defending the government even if it is moving in the wrong direction

    there are crack appearing in the govt (as one can understand from former PM's comments) and from other sectors like President commenting on divisions in the military. So this fast tracked salary payment is to console these persons, at least temporarily.

    When the salary is increased by 2500.00, the consumer items also will increase comparatively. what's the point?

    Wara Thursday, 30 December 2010 11:04 AM

    Election or what ever, main thing is people are benifitting. Isn't it good ??

    Wara Thursday, 30 December 2010 11:06 AM

    Ashoka Thursday, 30 December 2010 07:28 AM

    Mohamed Thursday, 30 December 2010 07:32 AM

    Handipora Thursday, 30 December 2010 07:40 AM

    Is that the promised 2500/- in the manifesto?

    salaryforus Thursday, 30 December 2010 07:45 AM

    then wht about the private sector are they are robots?

    Cheena Pattas Thursday, 30 December 2010 07:57 AM

    The elections are coming and so is Santa, though a little late.

    Sicillain Thursday, 30 December 2010 08:04 AM

    consider the private sector. There are employees in SriLankan Airlines without a salary increment for 4 years and no confirmation of job yet.

    MagodisThuma Thursday, 30 December 2010 08:14 AM

    Tourism is booming... No War...but pockets are empty !.

    Tharaka Chanaka Thursday, 30 December 2010 08:41 AM

    What about the private sector salary increments promised during the election???????

    R.Dias Friday, 31 December 2010 06:07 AM

    Mr. Ramukwella the LC Elections are in March ?? hoh hoh hoho

    MK Thursday, 30 December 2010 08:52 AM

    Government cant increase private sector salaries. but they can only request for an increment but it all depends on the individual companies and their performances. try to learn a bit about economics.
