Yet the Cooperative Wholesale Establishment (CWE) is supplying rice at a concessionary price,” the Minister said. “The Paddy Marketing Board is only distributing rice to CWE. Therefore, the CWE has become the main distributor. Many consume ‘Nadu’ rice. Therefore, the issue is minimized up to some extent. We hear that ‘Nadu rice ‘has been allegedly used as animal feed during the previous regime. I cannot take responsibility about the flaws of the previous government,” Minister Rajapaksa said.

He also added that steps will be taken to control the prices of all the rice varieties in the near future.
