State Minister of Organic Fertilizer Shashindra Rajapaksa says that the shortage of vegetables in the country will be resolved within two months.
“There is a problem with the fertiizer that came from the Chinese ship. That’s why it was returned. According to our standards, the fertilizer will be re-produced and given back to us. We have to pay when it is delivered.
Q. Does that mean this money is not going to be wasted?
“No, no. Not wasted at all!”
Q. There are no vegetables in the country now. And there is no money to import?
“Ask me that question in two months… then I will answer it”
Shashindra Rajapaksa stated this addressing a media briefing held in Badulla yesterday (20).
