Top Government Spokesman Hints Salary Hike For Public Sector

Palitha Range Bandara, the Secretary General of the United National Party, stated that the government was planning to raise the salaries of government employees in the last quarter.

He says that if the government achieves its desired goals, the public will benefit from this decision.

The President has also expressed his intention to increase the salaries of government employees once the country's economy stabilizes, Range Bandara said.

However, it remains unclear if this proposed salary hike for the state sector will align with the ongoing IMF program in Sri Lanka. Reforming the state sector is a key task for the government under the IMF programme.
