    Do you think this country is run purely by you idiots in the private sector?

    dffdds Monday, 22 November 2010 03:04 PM

    A person geting a salary of Rs 20,000 will only get an increase of Rs 1000.00. Not enough!!

    can you guys in the private sector work more and pay more taxes so that we in the govt sector can get a higher increment next year?

    These politicians have mastered the art of fooling the masses by telling "people are intelligent, you cant fool them" . What a pity.

    All the MPs got their salary increments just before the budget in the guise of increasing the salary judges. Poor fellows.

    At least the increase should have been on par with their figure of 10 %.

    A real "patriot" will never ask what the government can give him, but what he can give to the government so that the the President, Ministers, MPs and the hangers-on, and their families can live a luxurious life. The very same patriot must condition his mind to look at those luxuries enjoyed by their "heros" and live happily thereafter without grumbling. What a Paradise we are living in!

    Heamu Monday, 22 November 2010 12:35 PM

    Well done MR. Public servants not yet earned their salaries. Wake up.

    Agreed, if SF was the president we would've got 10000/= increase.

    weerasuriya Monday, 22 November 2010 12:59 PM

    Salary Increase should be at least by 15% is can manage otherwise no point of increased by 5%. At least par with the increase of cabinet ministers %.

    Kari Monday, 22 November 2010 01:06 PM

    Highly dissapointed!!!

    maruwa Monday, 22 November 2010 01:12 PM

    I always found percentage increments are always unfair to low salary earners. it should have been a fixed amount for everyone.

    Yusry Monday, 22 November 2010 01:19 PM

    hmmmm! What a dissapointment!
