Removal of 13 funds from Surcharge Tax Bill a victory for millions of working people: SJB

The removal of 13 funds from the controverseial Surcharge Tax Bill is a victory for the working people of Sri Lanka, the Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) stated, following the Attorney General’s move of informing the Supreme Court that an amendment will be brought to remove the funds from the proposed bill today (02).

“The government arbitrarily planned to levy a surcharge on the funds of hundreds of thousands of Sri Lankan workers, including the Employees Provident Fund, and we fought unconditionally on behalf of the people against it.

Without further ado, Samagi Jana Balawegaya filed a petition in the Supreme Court against the relevant tax bill.

Accordingly, the Attorney General stated in court that an amendment would be brought to remove 13 funds from taxes.

It is a victory for millions of working people in this country.

Samagi Jana Balawegaya is the only political party that has gone to court for that victory and we are humbly proud of it in the name of the entire working people of this country.”
