The retired and disabled soldiers say that they will continue with their Sathyagraha until their problems are resolved.
They are engaged in the Sathyagraha opposite the Colombo Fort Railway Station for the seventh day and even though some representatives went to the Presidential Secretariat yesterday for a discussion they had not received a proper solution to their problem.
Subsequently they met the Defence Secretary Retired General Shantha Kottegoda at the Defence Ministry.
On this occasion the Defence Secretary had said that the Cabinet Paper regarding paying salaries and allowances during the entire life time will be presented to the Cabinet today.
Meanwhile, civil organizations, clergy and other groups arrived yesterday as well at the place where the soldiers are engaged in their Sathyagraha.
