President Rajapaksa has said that he still consumes rice than earlier whether it is or not contaminated with Arsenic. The President accused attempts made by certain elements treacherously to prevent the public from consuming rice creating an Arsenic fear. The Government has drawn its firm attention on the Arsenic tale. Tests that should be done are being carried out. However tests conducted so far have confirmed that rice is not contaminated with Arsenic. Pointing out to editorial heads that the Government was taking optimum measures for the safety of the people and that they should not have any fear on such propaganda, the President emphasized that he was daily consuming red rice.
