He said the government decision to implement the pay panel’s report and pay higher salaries was guided by the conviction that “the government employees’ salaries should be respectable”.

“It’s a mixed bag. But one thing that was behind the decision to accept the report was that the government servants’ salary has to come to a respectable level”.
