Minister of State Shehan Semasinghe emphasizes that the government should take a decision in the future to restructure the loss-making state institutions.
“The taxpayers in this country have to bear the burden of either inefficient or inactive institutions. We think the trade unions should work together with the government, but the efforts of the trade unions to maintain those positions have caused some prejudice to the people as a whole. Therefore, in the future, we have to take a decision on how to restructure such institutions and create a system that can provide further relief to the taxpayers and the people who receive relief. ”
Minister of State Shehan Semasinghe stated this while expressing his views to the media on the 31st.
