He ex­pressed these views when jour­nal­ists asked about the mys­tery sur­round­ing the price for­mula af­ter an event held in the Hec­tor Kobbekaduwa Agrar­ian Re­search and Train­ing In­sti­tute yes­ter­day.

“Peo­ple have the right to know about this price for­mula which has bur­dened them in nu­mer­ous oc­ca­sions. Hence, I thought of ques­tion­ing Min­ster Sa­ma­raweera about the price for­mula on be­half of the peo­ple,” the Min­is­ter said

Mean­while, he said they as the Tamil Pro­gres­sive Al­liance (TPA) would not sup­port an in­terim Govern­ment pro­posed by the Joint Op­po­si­tion and the SLFP mem­bers.

“There is a ru­mour spread­ing that I have taken the ini­tia­tive to form a Govern­ment in which the Pres­i­dent would be Maithri­pala Sirisena and Prime Min­is­ter would be Mahinda Ra­japaksa. I to­tally re­ject such claims. I have not taken an ini­tia­tive to do so,” the Min­is­ter said.
