The All Island Agrarian Federation has decided to file a petition at the Supreme Court requesting that the drought relief provided to the Moneragala District be given to seven more districts.   

All Island Agrarian Federation national organizer Naamal Karunaratne told our news team that relief should be given to drought-affected people in the Hambantota, Tirincomalee, Kurunegala, Anuradhapura, Polonnaruwa and Ampara Districts as well.

The Economic Development Ministry had recently decided to provide a 2500 rupee drought relief per family living in the Moneragala District.

Subsequently it was temporarily withheld as a result of allegations that relief was given targeting the election.
