Garlic tax of Sri Lanka government

garlic flowers
The Cooperatives and Internal Trade Ministry has increased import taxes on big onions, potatoes and garlic. Taxes on a kilo of big onions have been increased by Rs. 10, potatoes by Rs. 5 and garlic by Rs. 15.

Normally, the government says that the taxes are imposed to save the local farmers from price slash. OK. But what about garlic?

As far as we know, garlic is not grown in Sri Lanka.

The price of garlic rose very high last month and now it is low.

What government doing is robbing the poor consumers Rs. 15 per kilo of garlic.
