Public Health Inspectors have decided to launch a token strike Island-wide today.
This is in protest against the killing at Thambalagamuwa yesterday of a PHI engaged in Dengue Eradication duties.
Sri Lanka Public Health Inspectors' Union chairman Upul Rohana said that in future, authorities should ensure that PHIs are deployed in pairs when inspecting houses.
The SLFP Central working committee is scheduled to meet this afternoon at Temple Trees under the patronage of President Mahinda Rajapaksa.
At the central working committee meeting held today a decision will
be taken as to who will contest for the UPFA Chief Ministerial candidate positions at the three Provincial Councils where election is due.
A decision is also scheduled to be taken with regard to candidates who will be granted SLFP nomination for the three provincial councils.
The selection of candidates that the SLFP puts forward for contesting at
the election this time began on the 6th of this month.
