Speaking in Polonnaruwa today, the Minister said that he did not allow such multinationals to buy him.

 

The Supreme Court issued an injunction on last Friday on the government gazette which made it compulsory for tobacco companies to covering 80 percent space of cigarette packets with pictorial warnings.
