Labour Party MP Shakeel Mohamed has questioned the timing of the announcement which would grant Rs1,000 allocation to all employees, Defi Media reported.
Speaking during the 2022-2023 budget debates, Mohamed deplored that the sum of Rs 1000 granted to employees is an allowance and not a salary increase.
The member was very critical that the amount to pay this amount is being taken from the CSG – “which was meant for retirement”.
He described as a “political fraud because people are getting what they have saved and what what was their due anyway.”
