Batticaloa farmers should be granted with fertilizer subsidy, requested the former CM of EP, Mohamed Naseer.
He requested so while commenting on the problems encountered by the Batticaloa farmers.
Commenting further he said that, lot of difficulties are being encountered in providing the benefits of the Fertilizer subsidy scheme inaugurated by the President on 2016.5.9th. I have asked the CM to pay attention on this problems.
Tamil and Muslim farmers of Batticaloa who have been badly affected by the 30 years long war are now undertaking the farming with much dedication. Although 15 days have passed after sowing paddy the Fertilizer subsidy has not reached the famers. Due action should be taken regarding this, he said.
