    Gas went up. Milk powder went up. Now flour. Next bread and all the bakery products. Salary remains unchanged. GSP is doubtful. Elections based sarcastic Sri Lankan economic policy will ruin the country. The poor will be affected. In fact, they might be deserving this punishment as they promptly voted for the government.

    Make bread from rice flour.

    Tuesday, 22 June 2010 10:04 AM

    In that case why eat rice bread. Instead eat rice. It will be cheaper.

    Tuesday, 22 June 2010 10:09 AM

    Well done. Vehicle prices are come down & price of essential goods are going up. NEW ECONOMIC POLICY.

    Tuesday, 22 June 2010 10:10 AM

    This is great, all the essential prices have gone up. This is what people who elected this government will get in return. A sensible government won't spend more on defence when there is no war!!!! this government fools their own people as well as the whole world!!!

    Tuesday, 22 June 2010 10:11 AM

    Government should have increased tax on vehicles and given the tax concession for flour. Very poor thinking.

    Tuesday, 22 June 2010 10:14 AM

    well done, this will reduce the imported flour and increase the usage of rice products

    Tuesday, 22 June 2010 10:15 AM

    101% agree with you

    Tuesday, 22 June 2010 10:23 AM

    Let us gullible fools not cry over spilled milk and flour. Let us ask one of those varsity pundits to devise a way of making a meal out of used car tires.

    Tuesday, 22 June 2010 10:25 AM

    Gayan!!! You are exactly correct...
    You just wait....!!!!

    Do you have any little idea about present rice flour products ? Do you know the price of Rice in the market and price of "Aappa" (hoppers) ??? wake up Man..

    Tuesday, 22 June 2010 10:33 AM

    Vehicle sales going up...but poor people are starving..what a senceless Government we have got!!

    Tuesday, 22 June 2010 10:33 AM

    ooooooo... it's just the begining ........ worse things are on the way.............

    Tuesday, 22 June 2010 10:45 AM

    These very high level strategic policy which normal human being can't think of. This will lead to a better economic growth to SL.
    But, Please do not ever think about the poor fellows.

    Tuesday, 22 June 2010 10:50 AM

    Another election result........

    Tuesday, 22 June 2010 10:56 AM

    I don’t believe in concessions. In economics it says somebody pays. Money can be better spent by investing it on infrastructure.

    Prima previously reduced the prices to play a dirty game with its new and strong competitor 7 star flour from Serendib Flour Mills.

    Now they have realised they can not throw out the competitor, so they have increased the prices.

    Tuesday, 22 June 2010 11:13 AM

    Mandate has already given and not bothered about the increase of prices. Eargely waiting until Salman Khan comes for shooting his next film. However till the next general or presidential election comes everyone must get ready to suffer.

    Tuesday, 22 June 2010 11:18 AM

    They need all the money to remove the Budda statues form the Bars all over the world. That is a price worth paying for.

    Tuesday, 22 June 2010 10:18 PM

    Up, up and away! (Suffer in silence!)

    Firstly, for some unknown reason, Prima holds a monopoly in Sri Lanka. Secondly, they are getting a subsidy, while being a monopoly. Both these are unnecessary. First remove the monopoly and make the flour import business competitive. That will resolve all these problems. This monopoly has been going on for about two decades now.
