Agriculture officials ruin farmers – Rathana Thera

Athuraliye Rathana Thera warns of strong action if paddy farmers who cultivated their land free of toxins are not given their fertilizer subsidy within two days.

He issued the warning at a media briefing yesterday (21).

According to him, more than two months had gone by since the cabinet had approved the payment of the fertilizer subsidy.

He alleged that agriculture ministry officials were against toxin-free agriculture and accused them of ruining the farmers.
