Rice bonanza for parliamentarieans
bumper paddy harvest in Sri Lanka boosting economic growth and enhancing
the country's food security situation has also provided an unexpected
bonanza for parliamentarians. Recently Agriculture Minister S.B.
Dissanayake urged parliament to serve three rice meals or rice-related
meals a day. "If our parliamentarians have grown on one rice
meal a day, imagine their 'joy' if asked to consume three rice meals,"
quipped a business analyst.
