Thimphu, January 22: The private sector has expressed its dissatisfaction on the government decision to increase the salary of the government employees. 
Saying that private businesses have been hit hard by the economic recession, the private companies are unlikely to adopt the government decision. This means those working on private sectors have to bear the burnt of increase in consumer prices in the market due to increase in salary of government employees.
