Addressing a public meeting in Kaduwela on Saturday, UNP MP Sujeewa Senasinghe said that the state sector salary will not increase by Rs.1200 as mentioned in the budget.

 The meeting was attended by UNP members and was held last evening in the Bomiriya area in Kaduwela.

Equipment was donated during the meeting to the Bomiriya Rassapana Welfare Committee.

 The minister stated,

 “Profits of all profit-making institutions have fallen by 20 percent. There is no increase of Rs.1200  in the salary. It will be removed as they please. The prices of dried fish have increased, the price of sugar has increased and the price of milk has increased. But they are providing tax concessions for casinos. In other countries the casinos are taxed 100 million dollars.”
