Samurdhi Amendment Circular cancelled

The Cabinet Sub-Committee has decided to cancel the Samurdhi Amendment Circular, Minister Mahinda Amaraweera said.

In the wake of protests from Samurdhi beneficiaries who staged countless protests and objections from politicians including members of the government, President Maithripala Sirisena last week assured that the government will not cut off or reduce the benefits of the Samurdhi beneficiaries.

He pointed out there are large number of people in the country who are eligible for the Samurdhi benefit but have not been granted them yet.
