    As an ex-bank executive I cannot see any reason for this strike. Those affected by the budget proposals have already called off the strike. CBEU has become a puppet of certain politicians. After 1979 the highest salary increase was given by this govt to the bank employees through the latest collective agreement. The bank employees provident fund is not under the central bank but as a separate trust fund managed by bank officials and employees. Employees enjoy the privilege of obtaining PF loans up to 85% at a minimal interest rate. But still they want to strike. O tempora O mores!

    This is the first time in the History of Sri Lanka that a Budget presented by a Finance Minister has drawn so much protests and objections from virtually every section of the Sri Lankan community.If the Minister, Ravi Karunanayake, has any self respect, he must resign forthwith.

    Fully agree. And it is a good move to reduce lease exposure in the banking system and move to more loan products.
