Parliamentarian Rohini Kumari Wijerathna claims the present government has not increased the salaries of teachers in any manner.
The MP said the public should clearly understand that the government has taken steps to pay only a portion of the salaries due to teachers.
She added that the budgetary proposal should be corrected, stating in order to eliminate teachers and principals’ salary anomalies and to pay one third of their dues, allocations were made.
MP Wijerathna claimed otherwise it is an insult to teachers and principals and may incite hatred amongst others.
She stressed no salary increment was provided through the budget, adding however an individual’s salary increased.
MP Wijerathna said the usual policy of the government is to slash the pension and not allow persons to retire adding however the Governor of the Central Bank of Sri Lanka Ajith Nivard Cabraal has been given his pension.
He added however that Parliament is unaware.
The MP claimed while remaining as the CBSL Governor Cabraal gets a monthly salary and approval was given by the Secretary to the President PB Jayasundara.
