By Tharindu Chaturanga
Approval has not been given to offer relief to fishermen who are demanding a reduction in the price of fuel to operate their boats.
State Minister of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources Development Dilip Wedaarachchi told The Morning that he had requested the Finance Ministry to reduce the price of fuel for fishermen.
However, he said that approval had not yet been received and so his hands were tied.
