The United National Party alleges that the government’s statement regarding providing fuel concessions to fishermen is a lie.

UNP Puttlam district MP Palitha Rangebandara states that not a single fisherman in Chilaw has received the fuel concession as yet.

The UNP took measures to provide higher education scholarships to the two children of Anthony Fernando who died recently during the fisher community’s protests.

MP Rangebandara made these allegations at the function held today to hand over these scholarships.

Furthermore, three fishermen who were injured during the protests were also given fishing gear worth 450,000 each at this function.

Opposition Leader Ranil Wickremasinghe was also present.
