Government retakes leased out paddy store

Sep 20, 2010 6:01:42 AM - itnnews.lk

The Government has taken over the Hasalaka Paddy Store of the Paddy Marketing Board which had been leased to a businessman during the previous UNP regime.

A UNP politician has leased out the Hasalaka Paddy Store in the year 2002 to a friend. However according to reports Minister Johnston Fernando has directed the Board to take over the Paddy Store as he has not paid any instalment related to the lease. The Paddy Marketing Board says that paddy purchased from Ampara, Mahiyangana and surrounding areas stocked at this location.
