I ask him to end his hunger strike,” said the finance minister. Renganaden Padayachy said that the government is also sensitive to the problems of the entire population. “That’s why we are coming up with an increase in salaries through wage compensation,” he said. Padayachy added that the philosophy of the Pravind Jugnauth government is to rebuild the reserves in a short period of time. He added that this is what will allow price cuts.
