Public will have to eat jackfruit leaves soon - Mahinda

Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa has said that due to the skyrocketing vegetable prices, the people will soon have to consume jackfruit leaves and crotons to fill their stomachs.

He pointed out that most of the vegetable prices range from Rs. 70-80 per 250 grams and the public are in a pathetic plight with the increasing vegetable prices in addition to the tax burden placed on them by the government.

He blamed the government for not acting responsibly and asked if their policy was to get their officials to feed the people jackfruit leaves and croton leaves as food.
