The JVP charged today that the vegetable trade had been crippled due to punitive action taken by the Trade Ministry against persons  not transporting vegetables in plastic crates.

JVP MP Sunil Handunnetti told Parliament that vegetable traders in areas such as Thambuttegama staged a protest against this decision. (KB/YP)

    Using traditional handmade containers for transport of vegetables will create village jobs and save our environment from plastic waste.

    A very good move traditional methods damage most veges and fruits and the wastage is also added to the price and the consumer pays a hihger price. It will be tuff in the begining to change but it will sort itself out in the long run.It will be cleaner too.Isnt it time we moved forward.

    Yes. Seems to be a very good idea.

    The government cannot play to the gallery. Sometimes unpopular decisions need to be taken for the benefit of the people.
    This JVP claim is empty as usual. Just latching on to anything for political gain !
