Pensioners protest over pension cut

 A group of pensioners today (6) launched a protest  in front of the Fort Railway Station over the government’s decision to discontinue a proposal to increase pensions.

The Yahapalana Government had planned to increase pensions from this year, however the current administration in Parliament said that it could not afford such an expense.

The protest was organised by the Sri Lanka Pensioners’ Rights Organisation.
