    impartial Saturday, 27 November 2010 03:17 PM

    I bet he will not reesign. He is a white collared socialist ruined the LSSP.

    impartial Saturday, 27 November 2010 03:19 PM

    You can never be happy unless your seat in the parliament.

    WAC Saturday, 27 November 2010 03:29 PM

    Minister, you will be forced to keep your mouth shut soon.

    F Bakir Saturday, 27 November 2010 03:32 PM

    josh Saturday, 27 November 2010 06:08 PM

    first sign of a breakup in the government??

    malkanthi Saturday, 27 November 2010 08:13 AM

    I thought Prof Tissa Vitharana is more worried about sidelining as senior citizens of the parliament, ministry without power.

    Bandara Saturday, 27 November 2010 08:17 AM

    Another bankrupt and show-off socialist crying foul to protect his electability in any future elections. We have a lot of this type of politicians in Sri Lanka.

    pbj Saturday, 27 November 2010 08:34 AM

    Thank you gentleman for your open comment . And we hope that you'd speak of it at the HOUSE as well.

    thaminda Saturday, 27 November 2010 07:48 PM

    some thing is better than nothing.

    lanka puta Saturday, 27 November 2010 08:40 AM

    Perera Saturday, 27 November 2010 08:44 AM

    Disappointed with Your ministry post or your salary increment.. Crocodile tears.

    Holman Saturday, 27 November 2010 08:53 AM

    Why only public servants ? Now it is high time the Government consider a 'dole' for all living in Sri Lanka.

    S.Sriranjan Saturday, 27 November 2010 09:31 PM

    Most respected Professor Tissa Witharana too a normal citizen with self-centered motivation???

    kamil falool Saturday, 27 November 2010 09:04 AM

    BE HAPPAY WHAT THE BUDGET HAS APPAROVED ,PRIVATE SECTORS ARE ISSAPOINTED ,IT SHOULD BE CONSIDERED

    elaris Saturday, 27 November 2010 10:59 PM

    You are a disgrase to be a leader of a party like LSSP ones contrlolled by giants like NM, Colvin, Leslie. Get out of politics at least for the sake of those leaders.

    apsara Saturday, 27 November 2010 09:29 AM

    Prof. Tissa should have tailored his comment as 'at least Rs. 2500/- increment shall be given to public and private sector employees including parlimentaian' in order to create a Equal and Darmishta Society as per our Regional Leader MR's Mahinda Chintanaya.

    Apsara

    apsara Saturday, 27 November 2010 09:34 AM

    Also Prof. Tissa should have think about ordinary laymen, and all skilled, semi-skill, and un-skilled casual workers.

    Rather than icreasing the salary to sertain people, if the govt. reduce the prices of good and services then all the people of the mother land can be benefitted.

    Apsara

    Musthafa Saturday, 27 November 2010 09:40 AM

    Minister , you must resign to show your disappointment, it is only way.

    Ross Milan Sunday, 28 November 2010 10:19 PM

    Get Dayasiri to play the Presidents speech over & over again cause HE promised 2500/-

    SureshP Sunday, 28 November 2010 02:49 AM

    Very true! The best comment so far.

    dpl Sunday, 28 November 2010 03:34 AM

    the minister if you honest please Resign from the post.

    wimal Saturday, 27 November 2010 10:29 AM

    Please remember, this veteran leftist minister has already done a lot for the country in the area of Science and Technology and also has contributed a lot to draft the best political solution so far to prevent future separation of Sri Lanka.

    Believe me, you wouldn't find people like this when all Tamil parties ask for a federal Solution in the future.

    Monkey Choon Monday, 29 November 2010 12:15 AM

    Talking nuts. If you are unhappy show that - and resign from your no post minister portfolio. If i were you Proff. I would have retired from politics.

    RF Saturday, 27 November 2010 10:38 AM

    Seems the man is not happy with what he got...... Senior Minister..... But no power to sit in the Cabinet........ This is just the start more to speake out.........

    Rajitha Sunday, 28 November 2010 04:01 AM

    will he cross over? not a chance lol

    Ruwan Ferdinandez Saturday, 27 November 2010 10:57 AM

    Exactly. He should resign from his post (leaving it to somebody who could do the job) and stop taking his salary in protest.

    Felix Saturday, 27 November 2010 11:20 AM

    Why bother about the public servants increments. they will learn to manage their affairs with the little they get. You should say that you are disappointed with the increments and benifits received by the parliamantarians. Should have been at least Rs. 100,000 . God bless our country.

    gamini Saturday, 27 November 2010 11:53 AM

    Not sure why there should be a salary increment at all when they hardly work ""

    Mr. Prune Saturday, 27 November 2010 12:28 PM

    Mr. Minister, there is no need for you to worry about Rs. 2500 for the government servants. They were offered Rs. 10,000 and did not want it.
