UNP: Govt. Must Contribute Monies To Pension Scheme

May 23, 2011 11:28:39 AM - thesundayleader.lk

The UNP has said the government should contribute monies to the proposed private pension fund without utilizing the Employees Provident Fund (EPF) and Employees Trust Fund (ETF) funds.

UNP National Organizer and parliamentarian Ravi Karunanayake told the media that instead of contributing monies to the proposed pension scheme, the government was trying to shift monies from one fund belonging to the workers to another.

He said the government has forgotten the working masses in the country and has failed to work for their welfare.

Karunanayake claimed that the government has granted a salary increase to ministers and other high ranking public officials without granting a pay hike to the public sector workers.
