Hambantota district parliamentarian Namal Rajapaksa says that he has a doubt about whether former President Gotabaya Rajapaksa was advised by a person who led the Galle Face struggle regarding the use of chemical fertilisers.

“If not, I believe that a son of D.A. Rajapaksa, who was a farmer, will not deprive the farmers of their fertiliser subsidy,” he said.
