Lottery dealers to boycott sales for five days

All Island Lottery Dealers ‘Association (AILDA) would boycott selling lottery tickets for five days from tomorrow (16) as their demands were not met as promised by the President, the Daily Mirror learns. Finance Minister Ravi Karunanayake also strongly maintains that the new price of Rs.30 would not be changed at any cost. Speaking to the Daily Mirror Finance Minister Ravi Karunanayake said that the government was not in a position to fulfill these demands and the prices or the commissions that they anticipate to be amended would remain unchanged at all circumstances. However, the association President Krishan Marambe said the government had not yet responded to their demands as promised. The lottery ticket dealers protested since the latter part of last year over the price increase which was proposed in the budget 2017. This came in the wake of the Finance Ministry decision to amend the lottery ticket price to be increased from Rs. 20 to Rs.30 with effect from January 01.
