The Tamil Progressive Alliance says that discussions will be held today as well with plantation companies on increasing the daily wage of estate workers to 1000 rupees.

Discussions were held with regard to the matter last evening with prime minister Ranil Wickramasinghe and several other ministers and a follow up to this discussion is to be held today.

However the leader of the Tamil Progressive Alliance, Minister Mano Ganeshan noted that if the government does not take action to increase the daily wage of estate employees to 1000 rupees, a final decision on continuing in the government would be taken.

He added that he is prepared to take a decision regarding the matter today or tomorrow upon convening the party meeting.

Ministers Palani Digambaran, V. Radakrishnan are leaders of the alliance and 6 MPs represent the alliance in parliament.

Even though struggles were initiated demanding the increase of daily wage of estate sector employees to 1000 rupees, the agreement signed assured its increase to 700 rupees.

However many factions displayed their protest against this agreement including several state ministers.
