The “Magen Ratata” association is questioning the practicality of the promises made by the Head of State to uplift the farming community.
It says the government does not have the right policy to uplift the farming community.
Speaking during a media briefing, a member of the association Sanjaya Mahawatte said the Head of State during a recent rally claimed that he will stand with the farmers during difficult times.
He said despite such claims, the President failed to support the farmer during the fertilizer crisis.
Sanjaya Mahawatte noted that the government does not have the correct policy pertaining to fertilizer or bringing down equipment for the agriculture industry.
He said instead of making various claims the present administration must take meaningful steps to uplift the farming community.
