Dambulla makes Sri Lanka one of the key suppliers of salt, says Gotabhaya Rajapaksa, the Presidential candidate of the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP).
He said this was addressing a rally in Dambulla yesterday (08).
President Mahinda Rajapaksa said that steps would be taken to strengthen the economy of the onion farmer by guaranteeing a guaranteed price for salt and other onions.
He added that the farmer is not limited to the farming economy but he is adding value to the farmer’s products and making the farmer an entrepreneur.
He further stated that the local farmer has been deprived of allowing the import of crops like onions without paying any attention to the economy of the local farmer.
