Government is dedicated to granting  relief to the people; Daya Gamage

Minister Daya Gamage has said that the Government is dedicated to granting all relief to the people.

The Minister pointed out that Field Marshal Fonseka had mentioned that the salaries of public workers were increased by 10000 rupees. But Mahinda Rajapaksa claimed that he can only fight in a war. And that only 2500 rupees can be increased. The Minister mentioned that when they assume power the salaries of pubic employees will be increased by 10,000 rupees. As pledged the salaries were increased. The Samurdhi allowance was increased three fold. Not a single relief was deducted. Although the barrel of oil increased to 75 Dollars they did not increase the price of fuel as Rajapaksa did.

The Minister was addressing a function organized for the presentation of letters of appointment to officials who had been promoted to the rank of Social Service Officer. 192 Officers who had served in the post of Social Development Assistant at the Social Services Department for nearly 13 years received these appointments.
