Certain elements are spreading false propaganda about the new pension scheme to be initiated for the private sector.
When the private sector employees will come to know of the correct facts they will extend support towards this act. Prime Minister D.M. Jayaratne expressed these views at the inauguration of the T.B. Illangaratne Mawath at Patha-hewaheta.
The Prime Minister said that the President’s expectation is to set up a fund to provide for the working people to live their retirement life without suspicion. He said that despite opposition, this would become a great accomplishment with regard to the future of the poor masses. He said that the people would understand in due course that this is greatly beneficial to them. Then they would start to commend the programme.
