The island wide protest launched by lottery sales agents against the increase in price of national lottery tickets by 10 rupees continues on today.

Our correspondents stated that lottery tickets are not being sold, as many agents have closed ticket counters throughout the island.

Chairman of the lottery sales agents association Krishantha Marambage said that protests have been organized in many areas including Panadura, Galle and Matara today.

The agitation was launched yesterday against the increase of lottery ticket prices from 20 rupees to 30 rupees.

The Minister of Finance Ravi Karunanayake said yesterday that new sales agents will be assigned if the current sales agents are not prepared to implement the government’s decisions.
