President Mahinda Rajapaksa has directed authorities to implement relief assistance to the rain affected people under a systematic program.

He said it is the responsibility of all officials to provide relief to the needy.

The President opined during the ministry sub committee on food security and control of cost of living held at Temple Trees yesterday evening.

The Committee also discussed about the consumer goods prices in the current market.

The President also instructed officials to maintain rice stocks to face a shortage which could pose in the future due to the decline of rice production followed by drought in 2014.

He also instructed officials to maintain modern rice stores in order to preserve the quality of rice, and advised them to expand such stores to other areas similar to that of the rice store currently being maintained in Veyangoda.
