Fish stall for Kohuwala - Kalubovila
The Fisheries Minister is making a commendable effort to stabilize
fish prices by opening more Fisheries Corp stalls and deploying sales
vans at popular market places.
One such sales van used to come to Kohuwala junction twice a week
much to the relief of the consumers in and around Kohuwala who were able
to add protein value to their daily diet without much strain on their
Certainly, this would have hurt the Fish Mudalali at Kohuwala who
always had the monopoly. A powerful politician of the area came to his
rescue and made Kohuwala out of bounds for the fish sales van.
Now this van is parked far away from Kohuwla junction and not
accessible to the ordinary consumers who do not use vehicles for
marketing. This politician will have to make a choice between the Fish
Mudalali and the voters who will have the chance to exercise their
choice in the near future.
I request the Minister to open a fish stall at Kohuwala or Kalubovila
to relieve the aggrieved consumers.
