PMB Chairman M.D. Dissanayake said they had undertaken to return the stores to the MRIA in good condition after completing their work. (Ajith Siriwardane)

    They are going to use only the hanger and the stores.not the terminal building.

    Bala Friday, 28 August 2015 06:17 PM

    Yes make use of the buildings for anything - after all storing paddy does not damage or spoil the warehouse unlike say heavy goods or lubricant oil (floor damage) or dry fish (smell) .

    What can you expect from a Country with idiotic bureaucrats who cannot even properly market sigiriya to the world.

    sukry Friday, 28 August 2015 06:28 PM

    disgusting and annoyed, what a country and horrible people they are, this is a sabotage. the country image is a shed as a ignorant

    Cobra Friday, 28 August 2015 06:30 PM

    What do you think Mahinda made those huge hangers for????

    Lawry Saturday, 29 August 2015 04:54 PM

    And let the paddy rot for now?

    sss Friday, 28 August 2015 06:31 PM

    also please pay a decent price to farmers. it is a sin to keep them in perpetual poverty while we are sustained by them

    Soon will be heavy air traffic around this PA (paddy airport) as foreigners will come to buy paddy.

    Top Cat Friday, 28 August 2015 07:42 PM

    To store HIS paddy, what else!!?

    Bala Saturday, 29 August 2015 07:00 PM

    MRIA a threat to spore - you must be joking. Spore so far ahead with their us$55000 per person earningcapacity that SL will take 25 years to get near. They are storing oil underground.

    KP Saturday, 29 August 2015 07:07 PM

    Yeah... Please also use parliament to store hay, temple trees to store eggs and sirikotha to store milk..... govi janathaawata jaya wewa.....

    Gobba Saturday, 29 August 2015 07:13 PM

    Future threat for Paddy Storage ? U must still be a Baiyya.

    Fassey Friday, 28 August 2015 08:05 PM

    Without being annoyed be happy that MRIA is going to get some revenue.

    Dr M.L.Najimudeen Saturday, 29 August 2015 10:47 AM

    I believe this airport can be utilized as a domestic airport, aviation training center, office complex and a hotel instead of a paddy market storage building.Dr M.L.Najimudeen

    If people are willing to pay more for their doze of rice, farmers can be paid more. It goes both ways!

    madamoosalaya Friday, 28 August 2015 09:21 PM

    Good and useful idea.

    Dissa Friday, 28 August 2015 09:30 PM

    Will that paddy transport by using this via DM Android App

    Rahim Friday, 28 August 2015 09:43 PM

    Up to now we have seen farmers of North central provincesuffering without storage facilities. So this means, they must bring their paddy all the way to Mattala?

    Bala Friday, 28 August 2015 09:52 PM

    For the bats to hang may be.

    Chintaka Friday, 28 August 2015 11:33 PM

    Thanks to Mahinda Chinthanaya. Can we use the run way for Namals car race in the night. Please make best use of it.

    Coconut Republic Friday, 28 August 2015 11:34 PM

    Not a good idea! A further disaster

    R S S Perera Saturday, 29 August 2015 02:04 AM

    The Magampura port in Hambantota should be leased out to people who would like to farm prawns and crabs.

    Simple Simon Saturday, 29 August 2015 02:50 AM

    Aiyyo Salli!

    Tomsam Saturday, 29 August 2015 03:12 AM

    If the clowns have genuine wish to reconcile with Tamils, they should dismantle this white elephant and reopen Palaly International airport as it was in past!

    Ruwang Saturday, 29 August 2015 04:15 AM

    Why cant they privatize this airport? Dont they have any other place to store paddy?Singapore must be laughing for this act as MRIA is a future threat to them.I heard , during 60s,Singapore was behind pickettings in Colombo port.

    Waco Sunday, 30 August 2015 04:36 AM

    The government must build few stores in North Central.

    JEFF Saturday, 29 August 2015 04:25 AM

    Well said

    Jimmy Saturday, 29 August 2015 01:46 PM

    Storing paddy in hangers is bad for image of Sri Lanka and shows lack of class. Top professionals should be brought in to recommend ways to make the airport viable or see what else can be done with it, for the Airport is being paid for by the Sri Lankan people.
