The salary of the President of the country is only 90,000 rupees and in comparison with that the nursing service gets more facilities says the Chancellor of the University of Colombo Ven. Murutthettuwe Ananda Thero.
“This is not a job, this is a profession. Maybe giving you some allowance or salary for the service you do is a different matter. But we are committed to doing a good service. The salary of the President is 90,000 rupees. When we make this comparison, today we have more facilities. Our side also needs to be a little better when we get more facilities. Despite these shortcomings, if we come to our Prime Minister and our current President as much as possible and remind them, we will never say no.”
Ven. Murutthettuwe Ananda Thera said this addressing a function held at Temple Trees yesterday (26) to dedicate 153 new nurses to the service of the Nightingale Pledge.
