It has been reported to our news team from several areas with regard to the way farmers are inconvenienced as a result of paddy purchase not taking place in a systematic manner.

Some farmers told our regional correspondents visiting the relevant locations that they were staying in queues for three days to sell paddy.

This situation is widely prevalent in the Matale District.

  

The farmers said further that paddy sale was further delayed as the Paddy Marketing Board had appointed only one manager for the store.

Our news team inquired about this problem from PMB Chairman M. B. Dissanayake.

The PMB Chairman said that the Paddy Marketing Board did not have enough efficient personnel for handling paddy purchase.

He said that however he hoped to carry out paddy purchase in manner not inconveniencing the farmers by using the mobile purchase service.
