Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa has promised to intervene in the problems of vegetable farmers and find a solution as soon as possible, says the Chairman of the All Ceylon Special Economic Centers Association Aruna Shantha Hettiarachchi.

The meeting was held at the Prime Minister’s official residence in Nuwara Eliya today.

The All Ceylon Dedicated Economic Centers Association has emphasized to Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa that there may be a shortage of vegetables in the future due to the prevailing situation and that the shortage of vegetables can be prevented only if chemical fertilizers are provided.

However, he said vegetable prices in the market continued to rise and there could be a severe shortage of vegetables by May.

Meanwhile, consumers complain that there is no longer enough milk powder in the market.
