"Coconut Gazette is wrong" - Anura Kumara Dissanayake

Leader of the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna Anura Kumara Dissanayake says legal action cannot be initiated against traders arrested for violating the recently issued

Gazette on coconut prices. MP Dissanayake said that as per the laws of Sri Lanka the accepted units used for measurements are meters and centimeters.

However, the gazette notification issued on coconut prices is based on inches which is invalid and cannot be the basis for legal action, he added.
