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.

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