Sri Lanka’s chicken sellers protest against controlled price initiative

22.07.2016

Chicken sellers in Hatton, Bogawanthalawa and Maskeliya areas in Sri Lanka are protesting against the move by the government to introduce a controlled price for the meat.

They have launched a protest by closing their shops. The sellers claim that they cannot sell chicken for USD 3.4. They added that the meat can be sold at the controlled price if poultry farmers are provided relief from taxes so that they can sell wholesale chicken at a lower price.
