United National Party Parliamentarian Sajith Premadasa attended a function in Thissamaharama on Sunday morning.

Sajith Premadasa expressed the following views at the event.

“I would like to tell the people who forgot Ranasinghe Premadasa, the only time that there was a control on milk powder prices was the time of my father. The only thing that the people remember is the present Minister of Consumer Affairs.”

He further said, “When we say to lift the tax on milk powder in order to reduce the price, the government is against it. This is very bad because they can lift the tax on those who go on car races for fun. This is the current wonder. Ranasinghe Premadasa did not allow the increase in the price of milk powder. He said if the the price of milk powder is increasing, the government will bear that cost. The people have forgotten all this.”

At the function, financial and material donations were made to the Uddha Kandara Maha Vihara in Yodha Kandiya under the ‘Sasunata Aruna’ programme.
