    WTF Saturday, 13 October 2012 10:25 AM

    we should blame ourselves who voted in east, who voted in Sabaragamuva, who voted in Uturu meda for government.....if we keep on voting they will keep on increasing prices more and more...uneducated idiots are the main reason for failure of democracy...

    berty Saturday, 13 October 2012 10:25 AM

    This indicates Government's inefficiency. They do not know what
    they are doing. For God shake pl hand over to a party who can do a better job.

    Janaki Kalansuriya Saturday, 13 October 2012 10:38 AM

    So, why have a debate and a debate discussion at the expense of us tax payers? All things, financial can be settled this way and no need for budgets.

    If I`m not mistaken chicken food went up !! As per my friend, for a new batch of 5000 broiler chicken, a chick farmer would bear an additional cost of Rs 30,000.

    Lobo Monday, 15 October 2012 03:46 AM

    Read between the lines......people will stop rearing chickens and the chicken-coops will be empty. Those who can't afford to build homes so will move into the empty chicken-coops

    Al Rasa Monday, 15 October 2012 03:54 AM

    Eating of flesh by people of this country is too much instead should encourage to eat vegetable. Cement is needed everywhere. Trees are uprooted and concrete structures are coming up.

    John Monday, 15 October 2012 03:46 AM

    especially the ones in parliament

    frank hilary Sunday, 14 October 2012 02:37 PM

    Govt, should give the reasons for the price hike. This is very important because the silent majority wants to know why the prices should go up like this.

    Kanthie Monday, 15 October 2012 05:02 AM

    Unavoidable even under UNP regime. Tigers down and leopards rise with prices hike.

    garawi Saturday, 13 October 2012 05:15 PM

    Not again!!! Now we cannot eat chicken. But local cement , yes!

    Subi Sunday, 14 October 2012 02:46 PM

    Go Lanka Go 20 / 20

    Honemoon Saturday, 13 October 2012 06:12 PM

    yep, parana coatkaraya is right. Pls do not increase the price of Punac since the most of the bulls rely on this commodity nowadays. Keep them alive, honourable Minister.

    Fusion Saturday, 13 October 2012 07:21 AM

    Yey! Excellent....

    Parana Coatkaraya Saturday, 13 October 2012 07:25 AM

    Hon.Minister,Only cement and chicken! How about punac? Punac price may be decreased,because nowadays majority of people eat punac. This has become an essential commodity.

    Hussain Sunday, 14 October 2012 06:02 PM

    Sri Lanka is one country, where what goes up never comes down.

    Mara Saturday, 13 October 2012 12:00 AM

    More to come, just the tip of the iceberg. Come another election we will still vote for them, a nation filled with a shameless bunch of boneless cowards, that includes me. Start taxing us for breathing soon, so that the affairs can get merrier via DM Android App
