Power and Energy Minister Patali Champika Ranawaka and State Minister Palitha Range Bandara visited the head office of Ceylon electricity Board this morning.

At this moment, a group of workers staged a demonstration demanding the cancellation of the salary increment approved by the previous management and work out a new salary increment system.

The two ministers were welcomed by the new CEB Chairman Anura Wijepala and led them to a reception.

Addressing the gathering later, Minister Ranawaka said that outsiders will not be allowed to control the CEB as long as he is holding the ministry portfolio.

After the reception, workers started the demonstration again demanding the cancellation of the unfair salary increments which were implemented before the election of the new President.

Lanka Viduli Sevaka Sangamaya General Secretary Ranjan Jayalal said that such salary increment which was introduced without the Cabinet approval should be cancelled and it should be replaced with a new system.

Later Minister Patali Champika Ranawaka said that he would discuss the matter with the trade unions and find a solution to the dispute.
