Middle men’s corrupt business banned in Dambulla

After banning the middle men’s unscrupulous business called ‘Nadi Weladama’ in the Dambulla Dedicated Economic Centre, on the instructions of President Gotabaya Rajapaksa, the arrival of outside traders has increased, while the vegetable prices are also in a sharp decline, Chairman of D.D.E.C Channa Eraula said.

He said this at a media briefing held at Dambulla Trade Union’s Office. He further stated that under the current situation, the arrival of outside traders have been risen by over 25 per cent. Therefore, vegetable prices too dropped by about 35 percent. It was a consolation to small scale vegetable vendors as well as the consumers.

Eraula mentioned that nearly 5,000 metric tons of vegetable are being received daily by the businessmen in this centre, which is the hub of vegetable business in the island. Earlier the middlemen gained a high profit from their business causing a big loss to the market.

The businessmen of D.D.E.C. and farmers appreciate this commendable action taken by the government, the chairman said.
