MINISTER SENEVIRATNE BLAMES WEATHER FOR HIGH PRICE OF SALT, BIG ONIONS

The price of salt and big onions has escalated. This is normal in the agriculture sector even under any efficient administration because of the change in the weather patterns, says W. D. J. Seneviratne, Minister of Public Administration and Home Affairs.

He expressed these views at a ceremony held to declare open the new two-story building at the Kalawana divisional secretariat.

“The big onions were imported from India to fill in the shortage of big onions in the country. But at present big onions can’t be imported even from India because they too don’t have the necessary stock that we need. This is due to the heavy rains experienced in India. This shortage can’t be overcome by blaming our politicians or our president,” he added.
