The Ministry of Finance says the kerosene subsidy will be given to Samurdhi beneficiaries without electricity as well as to the estate community.

Accordingly, the Ministry noted that the first installment of the kerosene concession will be paid to the Samadhi beneficiaries without electricity from 1st of June.

The Ministry of Finance also noted that the concession will be given to fishermen as well.

Meanwhile, a group of fishermen staged a protest this morning obstructing the Tangalle – Hambantota main road in Gurupokuna – Hungama against the recent hike in fuel prices.

The protesters emphasized that the increase in fuel prices is unfair to the fishing community.

Meanwhile, Minister of Power and Renewable Energy Ranjith Siyambalapitiya said no decision has been taken to increase the electricity rates even though the fuel prices were revised in line with the rising prices of crude oil.
