President Mahinda Rajapaksa said the working class proved themselves at the last Presidential Election that they cannot be taken for a ride by giving false promises.
The working class was with the Government when some elements were trying to deceive them by promising a salary hike of Rs 10,000, he added.
The President said that the proletariat is not prepared to betray the country for a salary hike and they believed in what the Government promised them at the last Presidential Election.
He added that the working class was with the Government at a time when some political party leaders deviated from the policies of their party for dollars.
