Speaking at an event at the BMICH, Colombo, the minister said that after talks with the President, Prime Minister and several ministers, it was decided to reduce the price of a rice kilo to Rs. 66.
“Although we have imposed a control price, the traders do not follow it. I have ordered the Consumer Affairs Authority (CAA) to take strict measures against such traders. The aw will be strictly adhered to from today onwards,” he said.
