    Basmati Rice??? This is a type of luxury rice and not a version for the medium or low class citizens of this country. What a waste of foreign exchange!!! Rajapakse waste has already started.

    Sri Lanka should be the country that can export rice and not import rice. Why not cultivate Basmti rice in Sri Lanka. It can help local farmers.

    Does the country not have its own rice farmers?

    Who eats basmati? The poor, the middle class or the super rich? Perhaps the government does not know as to who elected them. Or do they?
