MP salary increment claims was a media stunt’

Parliamentarian Wimal Weerawansa says claims regarding salary increments for Members of Parliament are a false act.

Speaking during a media briefing in Colombo MP Weerawansa said no Parliamentarian had asked for a salary increment.

MP Weerawansa claimed the government made an announcement regarding salary increments to Parliamentarians and subsequently allowed the public to oppose the move following which the President announced that salaries of Parliaments will not increase.

MP Wimal Weerawansa noted the announcement regarding an increase of 215% for salaries of Parliamentarians was only a media stunt.
