The United Rice Growers’ Association alleged that there is no systematic approach in the government’s rice procurement program.

Speaking at a media briefing held today (09), the President of the Association Mudith Perera stated that in order to control the price of the rice properly, a new price of rice should be Gazetted so that the owners of rice mills can profit Rs. 5 and the shop owners can profit Rs. 5.

Meanwhile, Trade Minister Bandula Gunawardena speaking to the media today stated that the owners of rice mills have agreed to release rice to the market at the prices imposed by the government and then take action to create a shortage of rice in the market.

Also, all economic centres on the island and the Peliyagoda Manning Market will remain open tomorrow (10).
