The Canteen Owners Association has pointed out that legal action will be instituted against the bread price increase. The Bakery Owners Association has decided to increase the price of a loaf of bread weighing 450 grams by four rupees.
National Organizer of the Canteen Owners Association Asela Sampath said this is an unreasonable initiative.
Asela Sampath queried as to how the Bakery owners increased the price of bread. From whom did they ask? He said that the bakery owners had not increased the price of a loaf of bread weighing 450 grams. Its weight is only 350 grams.
The price should be increased by only two rupees and fifty cents. He said that they planned to file a Fundamental Rights petition against this price increase in the Supreme Court.
