State employees not responsible for government's inability to manage economy - Mangala
11th of May 2020

Former Finance Minister Mangala Samaraweera says that state employees are not responsible for the inability of a government to manage the country's economy properly.

He made this announcement in response to a request made by the Secretary to the President to allocate his or her monthly salary to the Widows 'and Orphans' Pension Fund if it is possible to strengthen the economy.

In a statement, former Finance Minister Mangala Samaraweera said that the present government has demanded the government to donate the salaries of all state employees to the government claiming that the economic crisis was caused by the coronation.

He further said that the government is now trying to shrug it off as a request by the president's secretary in the face of growing opposition to the request.
