JVP Propaganda Secretary Vijitha Herath says the public will be faced with a huge crisis if the current situation in relation to agriculture continues.
The Parliamentarian said an impending famine is inevitable in future.
MP Herath speaking in Nittambuwa criticized the actions of the Minister of Agriculture adding however fertiliser must be provided to the farming community on time in order to avert a possible famine.
He said Minister Mahindananda Aluthgamage is not mindful in decision making adding he also claimed that not a single grain of rice will be imported as long as he remains the Agriculture Minister.
MP Herath said despite the Minister’s claims 100,000MT of rice is being imported adding Minister Aluthgamage has not been beneficial to the country nor the farming community
