Traders in the Dambulla Dedicated Economic Center said a sharp drop in the prices of vegetables was being experienced at present and that it was mainly due to large stocks of vegetables arriving from the North.

They said the vegetable prices that had skyrocketed for the last several months much to the anxiety of the consumers was now on the decline. They pointed out that the price of vegetables that were between Rs. 150-and 300 a kilo had reduced to about Rs. 60. However, they said the prices of several varieties of upcountry vegetables are yet to be reduced.

Traders pointed out that the price of big onions which had been retailing between Rs. 150 and 200 had now reduced to Rs. 45. (Kanchana Kumara Ariyadasa)

    There are two things that government should know, 1. People cannot go to Dambulla to meet their requirement of vegetables. 2. It's of no use in reduction of vegetable prices on the media.

    Lol if we tell our local mudhalali that prices has reduced and telecasted on tv he is telling to buy from the tv. Reducing prices should be enforced in real life not on papers.
