(UDHAYAM, COLOMBO) – The Minister of Power and Renewable Energy Ranjith Siyambalapitiya Tuesday (27) requests all Trade Unions under his Ministry and the members to conduct their protest campaign and the conference scheduled for Wednesday (28) without obstructing the general public.

He said, the Government is seeking short term solutions to revise the salary of employees and increasing the salary of about 20, 100 employees is very difficult. In 2014, only the engineers’ salary has been increased, and later all the employees’ salary has been increased by 30 percent.
