The JVP says that there is more than likely to be a shortage of rice in the market, during the festive season.

Party leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake stated the reason for this, would be the government’s failure to release necessary stocks to the market in time.

Meanwhile, Disaster Management Minister Anura Priyadarshana Yapa said that a ministerial subcommittee has been appointed to make recommendations on how to face a looming drought.

Overheads from the ministries of Buddha Sasana, Postal and Muslim Religious Affairs, and Tourism and Christian Affairs have taken up for discussion today under the committee stage budget in parliament.
