Farmers representing several parts of the island have been placed under great duress owing to insufficient water supplies.

However addressing a media briefing held in Colombo, Minister of Irrigation and Water Resources Management Nimal Siripala De Silva stated that this situation had arisen since farmers had not adhered to the advice provided to them.

These were the views expressed by Minister Siripala in this regard.

However farmers challenge the statement made by Minister Siripala in this regard.

Heads of several agrarian organisations state that this seasons cultivations were done based on decisions reached at several agrarian meetings.

Meanwhile our news team was able to obtain the views of Minister of Agriculture Mahinda Yapa Abeywardhana in this regard.
