“Salary realignment after the increase in the guaranteed minimum income will soon be a reality,” announced the Prime Minister (PM) in Parliament on Tuesday, June 18. It was during his speech on the 2024-2025 Budget this afternoon. Pravind Jugnauth evokes a feeling of duty duly accomplished.

“We presented this last budget of my mandate with our heads held high in front of the population,” underlines the PM, who responded to criticisms made by the opposition accusing him of demagoguery.

Listing the measures granted to children, young people and the elderly, Pravind Jugnauth stressed that this demonstrates the consideration and compassion of this government. “We brought all these measures without an increase in VAT,” he added, specifying that this budget pleases the entire population because there is an improvement in the purchasing power of Mauritians. It is false to say that there was a voluntary depreciation of the rupee, retorts the Head of Government. Another subject covered: the horse racing industry.

Furthermore, Pravind Jugnauth paid tribute to the financial secretary, Dev Manraj, who died at the age of 75 last night. According to the PM, Dev Manraj was a visionary, a man of confidence and a perfect “gentleman”. “His departure will leave a void that will be difficult to fill. The nation has lost a respected servant,” he said.
