Criticizing the government’s move to increase the salaries of MPs, the Pivithuru Hela Urumaya (PHU) today said their salaries should be based on their performance similar to any other organisation.

PHU Leader and MP Udaya Gammanpila said the government should evaluate the progress it had made so far before increasing the salaries of the MPs.

“In any institution, the salaries of employees are usually based on their performance. The employees who work hard should receive salary increments and those who are slacking off should get their bonus reduced. The government should follow this method and do a self-evaluation,” he said. (Lahiru Pothmulla)

    Pay hike should be based on performances. Deserving members must be the one's who have completed the development targets set by the respective governments. Thank you.

    sunil Monday, 06 August 2018 04:25 PM

    Workers basic salaries based on their academic qualification, if you want performance then academic qualification of MP's should also be considered

    Chandana Monday, 06 August 2018 04:31 PM

    First think what do you have done for this country just talking and criticism.

    somapala Monday, 06 August 2018 04:31 PM

    Then you will get a negative salary, as all you are vomiting is all BS.

    channa Monday, 06 August 2018 04:38 PM

    the corrupte MPs and MPs who resist the developments of our mother Lanka should not be given a salary hike

    Samson Monday, 06 August 2018 04:45 PM

    Good proposal, based on performance salaries should be decreased to the same level as samudri benefits.

    Hubert Monday, 06 August 2018 04:53 PM

    Based on Lie counter

    GC Monday, 06 August 2018 04:57 PM

    Before making any proposal, one should define what 'performance' means and how it is measured (the 'metric') and by whom.a) Like getting their salary increase, is performance to be measured and evaluated by MPs themselves?b) What performance should one measure? Is it the amount of money accumulated through corruption? The time spent on working hard at them? How many thugs and criminals one has around? How much one shouts and how many times the Parliament was disrupted and brought into disrepute? How many trips abroad one took? How many duty free permits sold? How many lies told? etc etc?c) Don't our electoral system allow voters to judge the real and important performance at elections?d) No increase should be given in this parliament but perhaps give a bonus to those who get re-elected (not appointed again) next time because they have been judged by the electorate.

    DHA Monday, 06 August 2018 05:08 PM

    Then no deserves a salary at all

    Dhammika Monday, 06 August 2018 05:22 PM

    If so this man UG will have to pay millions to the govt. for the loss making ventures in which he was also an MP.

    Bandits Monday, 06 August 2018 05:59 PM

    This MP talks nonsense.He thinks the public are idiots. In one way he is right because we elected these bandits.

    Wise Donkey Monday, 06 August 2018 06:17 PM

    Could you tell us that who judge this performance? So indirectly you are for the increase ha!

    Dimuth Monday, 06 August 2018 06:54 PM

    MR will get no salary in that case as he rarely participates in debates or votes.

    Sincere Monday, 06 August 2018 07:00 PM

    Good point. So can you give us the list of performance of your guys during the previous regime, so that we can decide how much they should be paid. After all we who pay the politicians.

    S.P.RAMKUMAR Monday, 06 August 2018 08:37 PM

    Performing on corruption or on cheating, Hon. Gammanpila your passport under travel block. then you negative performer, . your salary should have reduced and cut off.

    Sara Monday, 06 August 2018 09:49 PM
