It has been reported to our news team that a situation has cropped up where the fertiliser supplied to farmers of Alahera Bakamuuna in Polonnaruwa as subsidy does not reach them.
Five fertiliser lorries have come from Colombo to the Bakamuuna Agrarian Services Centre for distributing the fertiliser required by farmers there.
Although the authorities requested the relevant lorry drivers to take the fertiliser to the villages the lorry drivers say that they have been paid only to transport the fertiliser to the Bakamuuna Agrarian Services Centre.
The drivers say that therefore they cannot transport the fertiliser to the villages.
How ever the farmers say that as a result of this they are thrown into much difficulty.
When we inquired from the relevant authorities this was their response.
