It was decided at a meeting chaired by Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesing to establish 'Fair Price Shops' with the support of private sector in order to control the rising Cost of Living during the festive season.
 
Through those shops, a 'Budget Pack' will be sold to the consumers for a concessionary price.
 
The 'Budget Pack' will include rice, dhal, sugar, sprats, onions, potatoes and canned fish.
 
The mechanism will be introduced to supermarket chains and Lak Sathosa outlets.
 
Meanwhile, at another meeting, Prime Minister urged the university authorities to concentrate on improving the quality of higher education instead of prioritizing constructing buildings at universities.
 
The meeting was attended by Vice Chancellors of universities.
 
The PM also said steps should be taken to get rid of ragging in universities.
