Look at the way of their life style and the houses they have built while they are in Public Service.

The Honourable Minister of Finance was very correct in saying that the Public Service is a burden on the government and demands for more salary increase cannot be allocated. Look at the salary structure of the public service, especially that of the Sri Lanka Administrative, Sri Lanka Foreign Service and Sri Lanka Education Services and the “PERKS” they have been getting/enjoying, ONLY just working for 4 hours of the 8 hours duty responsibility and that too palming the responsibility to juniors who cannot accomplish anything without authority.

They are either at “so-called meetings at various ministries” or attending functions or weddings, or on wild jaunting tours of the resort areas under the pretext of official duties taking their family members too in those tours. Some are more often visiting abroad saying they are attending conferences and raking in thousands of dollars as subsistence allowances while they are abroad.

The worst is how they earn big “kick backs” from tenders and other deals conniving with unscrupulous businessmen hand in glove with corrupt politicians and international business companies and how they have amazed enormous amounts of money. Look at the way of their life style and the houses they have built while they are in Public Service.

In fact all there wealth has to be seized by the government if they cannot account for it, when they retire, notwithstanding the fact that there are also honest and dedicated public servants who are not corrupt and dishonest who do not fall into this category.
