The Joint Opposition states that tax on tobacco should be increased instead of imposing VAT on small and medium time traders.

The government has proposed to increase tax on tobacco by 90%, but the proposal is not approved by the Cabinet as yet.

However, a sub Committee has been appointed to look into the matter.

Meanwhile, addressing a media conference held in Colombo this morning, Joint Opposition MP Bandula Gunawardana said that the increase in tax on tobacco would improve the health of people.
