Minister and Cabinet Spokesman Rajitha Senaratne said he had warned of an impending railway strike at the recent Cabinet meeting when Finance Minister Mangala Samaraweera objected to the Cabinet proposal brought in to resolve the salary anomalies of the railway employees.

He told at the weekly Cabinet briefing that the Cabinet Paper to address the salary anomalies of the railway employees had been brought in long time ago but it was delayed due to the objection of the Finance Ministry. (Diana Udayangani)

    Try and predict then prevent the next health strike, if you can.

    Who brought it without consulting finance ministry? Since FM should look for fund to accomplish this task.

    Rajith. For a political, vote advantage, you are betraying the cabinet responsibility. You backstab you brother minister Mangala

    Come on. where is your collective responsibility?. You dont add fuel to fire by going open with what you expressed at the cabinet . Any other country you would have been fired for making such a rash statement

    What a joke! Just because there is going to be a strike the salaries to be increased? Now I get it. It's because Rajitha is so scared the GMOA is on internal strike. Rajitha does not take any action against GMOA.

    Playing to the gallery again, where is cabinet collective responsibility?

    We need people who knows how to run a country. Not people who rob the country.

    Sorry Rajitha ! at the time Nimal Siripala had fallen asleep in the Cabinet.

    So you seem happy that the public are suffering while you enjoy life to the maximum. remember the days of your rule are numbered and hope we will never see politicians like you again.

    Correction of anomalies create further anomalies in other sectors. It is like taxing Doctors on a different method.

    Rasheed Thursday, 09 August 2018 11:07 AM

    Yes, the Finance Minster is busy regarding the salary increment for MPs and manipulating the Duty for Vehicles.

    appuhamy Thursday, 09 August 2018 12:10 PM

    when the MP's enjoy massive perks and salaries ,it is obvious that others too feel they have a right to demand higher salaries no one in this country gets a pension working for 5 years whereas these MPs do get once they serve for 5 years
