Agriculture Minister P.Harrison asked women to consume more and more pumpkin as a means of getting their beauty increased.

The Minister made such remarks in the wake of farmers lamenting that their pumpkin harvests do not fetch a good price.

He said pumpkin was a nutritious vegetable used for making sweetmeats, curry and soup.

"These are high delicacies. It is better for women to consume it more and more. Then, they become more beautiful," he said. (Kelum Bandara)

    Level of intelligence by Grade 8 qualified Minister. You should have googled ( likely he is unable to do) and educated our poor farmers in more detail and convincingly. Pathetic Sri Lanka.

    What a sexist and stupid remark. This is the collective intelligence of the men in SL. The percentage represented in parliament says it all.

    SAM Wednesday, 30 January 2019 09:36 AM

    People are not creative or making use as a by product in making use of the x supply. Even Pumpkin has now been used as a political and news item.

    Budu amme Wednesday, 30 January 2019 09:59 AM

    What about that dried pumpkin in the opposition

    renu Wednesday, 30 January 2019 10:15 AM

    Mr. Minister, there a a very serious issue regarding the ‘Sena’ worm that is affecting us all and here you are talking some rubbish about pumpkin seeds being good for women. What standards are you setting . Is this your IQ level? This is pathetic.

    Lawry Friday, 01 February 2019 07:46 PM

    Check it out!!!! Pumpkin is very good for increasing the platelet count in the blood. A portion of raw pumpkin juice daily reduces cholesterol. You Google it yourselves to make sure.
