“His Excellency the President has taken a tough decision with the health and future generations of the people of this country in mind. It is a challenge but we will overcome this challenge and we will not allow injustice to be done to the farmers.
We are implementing a program to bring the world’s highest and most required high quality fertilizer to Sri Lanka and provide the first phase and then to produce this fertilizer in our country and make it self-sufficient in fertilizers.
So this is a challenging time. We also ask the farmers, we know this is difficult. Because we too come from farming families who associate with the farming community in these districts. We will provide a sustainable solution for this. “
