    This is a result of incompetent Gotabaya and his Agri Minister Mahindananda for destroying our rice cultivation. These two are still living comfortable life paid by public including the rice farmers. What a country?

    Why Chinese Rice? The NCP Farmers have paddy stocks from the recent Yala harvest and are unable to sell the stocks at a fair price due to Govt buying price being less than the cost of production. Farmers will not cultivate the Maha season with Paddy due to the dire situation the Govt has dragged them into. Minister Amaraweera shame on you.

    The only country that provides it’s unwanted substandard food as donation to Sri Lanka is India.

    Is there bacteria in the rice? China would only donate what it doesn't want, easy way to take over sl, poison us all

    Public won’t see any goodwill in these donations,our people not expecting to receive such but chinese companies and banks connivance with rajapksha family looted wealth of SriLankans,if you help SriLankans to recover their robbed wealth , that is sufficient instead of handouts

    How very sad! We should produce enough rice for us plus export. An agricultural country like us should be ashamed getting handouts from others.

    Peanuts. Just to put things in perspective, the annual requirement of rice in SL is about 24 hundred thousand metric tons. This is just 0.2% of it. If China genuinely wanted to help, they’d agree to restructuring of debt.

    This donation meets just the fraction of quantity required to feed the starving Sri Lankans. Need to up the begging game. Lets see if the Indians continue to be benevolent.
