Sri Lankan Ministers to get paid to do nothing

Sri Lanka’s extremist President Mahinda Rajapaksa has decided to create non-Cabinet State Minister portfolios in the new government.

The new Cabinet is to consist of just 25 members, considerably smaller than the previous government.

Reliable sources inform this website that the President is planning to create state ministerial portfolios for the rest of the senior MPs, who worked as Ministers in the last Cabinet.

The State Ministers will be provided with benefits equal to the Cabinet Ministers but they will not be empowered with policymaking powers.

All in all, these so called State Ministers will get paid to do nothing. Sri Lankan tax payers have no choice but to watch in dismay.
