President Maithripala Sirisena says that a pilot project will be implemented to convert the paddy farmer into a producer of rice.

The measure will be taken with the objective of maintaining a fixed price for rice.

President Maithripala Sirisena stated this while participating in the National Aluth Sahal Mangalya held at Jaya Sri Maha Bo tree in Anuradhapura.

The President also noted that this initiative would prevent mediators from purchasing paddy from farmers, and making considerable income.

During the ceremony, the leader of the indigenous people Uru-warige Wannila Aththo along with his community members made a customary offering of bee’s honey to the sacred Bo tree.
