December 13, 2014

JVP Politburo member and Western Provincial Council Member K.D. Lalkantha said that whether they deliver their promises or not the people have to take it from them.

Speaking at a public rally yesterday he said that Maithripala Sirisena has given a number of promises such as the abolition of executive presidency and re-enactment of the 17th amendment. “We have seen those promises earlier,” Lalkantha added, saying that the people have seen enough promises being broken as well.

The people should agitate continuously to force the governments to deliver these promises, Lalkantha added.

He also spoke on the salaries of private and public sectors and said that there should be a law to increase the salary according to the Cost of Living Index.

If the CLI goes up by one unit, it means that the cost of living has increased by Rs 280, he added. “There should be a law so that that Rs 280 is increased in the salary” Lalkantha mentioned.
