Commodity prices are high and will rise further in the future, said Chief Government Whip, Minister Johnston Fernando.
“Commodity prices high, those could increase further. We have to face these things until we get rid of the epidemic. These are not things we do willingly. Who wants to increase the price of goods? Who wants to increase fuel prices? This is something that affects all communities. But reluctantly we have to implement a program that will keep all of us employed and the economy afloat. “
Minister Johnston Fernando said this while answering several questions raised by journalists during a visit to inspect the construction work on the Central Expressway in the Kurunegala area yesterday (22).
