Gas, milk powder, cement prices up

E-mail Print
Prices of domestic LP gas as well as imported milk powder will be increased with effect from midnight today, Consumer Affairs Minister Johnston Fernando said.

Accordingly, the price of a 12.5 kg cylinder would be increased by Rs. 350, while a packet of one kilogram and a packet of 400g of imported milk powder would be increased by Rs. 61 and Rs. 163 respectively.

The Minister also said that the Consumer Affairs Authority has given approval to increase the price of a bag of cement by Rs. 70 as well.

It was only yesterday, the Finance Ministry imposed a levy of 15 per cent or 92 rupees (whichever is higher) on a kilogram of imported milk powder, excepting infant milk powder

Do not blame Mahinda Chindanaya...He is the best president in our history of srilanka who defeat terrorrishm.

Now he face big preasure from western power. But definitely he will win all the enemies and we all enjoy freedom from western power.

Forget about the prices increases....it is not an issue.
we are not somalian or ethiyopian where hundred of thousand people die.
we also should accept to die atleast 25% of our country population die. then only we can talk about mahinda chinthanaya.. we are still save side do not worry....china is our best friend they will support us.

Why all this noise?? Ha?

How can we develop our country without looking after our ultra intelligent politicians. And looking after our precious super intelligent politicians needs lots of money and therefore prices have to increase a little here and there.

The increase is only worth a few seenibolas anyway.

People elect Mps,Mps become ministers why they are
silent now, how can they go to their respective villages canvass
vote. Have their done anything good for the mass.

That's what say every individual has to find ways to earn
and live.

People must understand no politician can do anything.
We are voting and electing them just to look after their well
being.
