    Basic requirement to the children and others are likely to be neglected due to price hike. Bones and teeth of the Sri Lankans might not be so healthy in the future?!

    Imported Milk subject to high taxes. Local milk throwing on the road. Another news Gvt wants to give cup of free milk to students to manage milk production. There is a lack in common sense.
