An issue has arisen with regard to the payment of salaries and allowances to 550,000 employees in 341 local government bodies.

Minister Vajira Abeywardena speaks about a possible failure to pay them before the New Year.

He says the opposition MPs who defeated certain votes of the Home Affairs, Provincial Councils and Local Government Ministry will have to take the blame. The Minister was speaking to the media in Colombo yesterday.
