Army To Sell Vegetables

Jan 6, 2011 12:04:13 PM - thesundayleader.lk

The Sri Lanka Army today (6) stated that it will purchase vegetables from local farmers to sell them at a concessionary rate in Colombo.

According to the Army, the move is expected to help control the prices of vegetables in the country. Purchasing vegetables directly from the farmers is expected to result in the reduction of prices due to the elimination of middlemen.

The latest programme launched by the Army has been initiated following directions by President Mahinda Rajapaksa and Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa.
