“This relief tranche is a part of total 10, 000 Metric Tons (10 million kgs) of rice approved by the Prime Minister of Pakistan Muhammad Nawaz Sharif for drought affected people of Sri Lanka. The remaining 7, 000 Metric Tons rice will also reach Colombo within April 2017,” he said.

    We have to accept the truth that we are a lazy nation who even cannot grow are own needs of rice. The only improvement is House Maids, three wheeler and bus drivers

    A miserable management of the relevant ministry officials, which opens the door to corruption. The emergency stocks should be renewed every half a year, and the old stocks should be sold cheaply through state shops to the people.

    We sell our paddy at subsidised rates to CB Bond Scam involved liquor merchants,and become beggars and be indebted other countries. Are we devoid of any shame and self respect ?
