No scarcity of commodity items in Jaffna - GA

The Jaffna Government Agent's office on Friday assured that the distribution of rice, wheat flour and other essential commodity items is being carried out without any interruption through public and private sector outlets. Referring to several media reports on the scarcity of essential commodity items in the district, the Jaffna Government Agent stressed that there was no shortage whatsoever of essential food items in the peninsula.

He said the current stocks of rice, wheat flour, sugar, dhal, milk powder, soap, toothpaste and other laundry products were sufficient to meet the needs of consumers in the district for at least another three months.

"We have a bulk stock of food items and steps have also been taken to distribute these essential commodity items even to areas outside the Jaffna district.

Asked about the supply of petroleum products, the GA said that although diesel, petrol, kerosene and other lubricants were freely available, there was a slight price hike in the transport sectors.
