Pro government trade unions protesting opposite the State Engineering Corporation today, charged that Minister Wimal Weerawanshe has over 35 vehicles for his personal use and were filling the corporation with henchmen who are given bogus posts.

The convener of  Joint Trade Unions Thushara Gunasekara said that Minister Wimal Werawanshe is directly responsible corruption in the corporation. “ The Minister has over 35 vehicles for his personal use, he also has given his henchmen bogus posts and they are paid huge salaries without even reporting to work” he charged.  

Convener of joint trade unions Thushara Gunasekara alleged that rampant corruption is prevalent at the corporation. “Large scale corruption prevails within the corporation, we have not received any salary increase during the last three years and we will continue to fight for our rights” he said

Gunasekara went on to state that all trade unions attached to the government participated in the protest. “The significance of this protest is that all trade unions attached to the government participated in this. We urge the president to intervene and stop put a stop to the rampant corruption in the corporation and to increase our salaries” he said.

The Convener said that around 3000 employees of all levels participated in the protest. The Trade Unions vowed to continue their protests until their demands are met. (By Hafeel Farisz)

    "This is a conspiracy by the West and the Imperialists who are opposed to my campaign against them.". This will be Wimal's response.

    Sudarshana Wednesday, 11 July 2012 10:14 AM

    Good move. Corruption should come to an end but isn't it just wistful thinking. Honesty should come from the top. Then it will flow down to the ones holding lower ranks.

    buffaloa citizen Wednesday, 11 July 2012 10:23 AM

    You would not do that if you were born to good parentage, learnt to be honest, ethical, principled and proper understanding of your religeon. Now you know what Wimal is?

    buffaloa citizen Wednesday, 11 July 2012 10:28 AM

    It takes a long time for this countries citizens to recogonise the real traitors and our real freinds both local and international. In the end it is too late, the damage is collassal and we can only sigh and re-elect again another group of monkeys to continue the bleeding in another way.

    Nimal Modawansa Wednesday, 11 July 2012 10:24 AM

    I have had enough hard times in my life. I have not been even to Sigiriya in my life. I will never get this opportunity again. You have given me the power through democratic process. Let me and my families have the luxury.

    Ranjith Wednesday, 11 July 2012 10:28 AM

    "Meka Amerikawe Kumanthranayak" Mr. Wimal start fasting to death now itself.

    upul Wednesday, 11 July 2012 04:02 PM

    Western Powers are behind providing 35 vehicles and then conspiring him.
