    There should be more and more green initiative to plant trees islandwide and strictly cut emissions and smoke from vehicles. the biggest threat to our environment is air pollution by vehicles.In no city, people can breath fresh clean air on the road. everywhere we see vehicle with smoke that to a significant amount. there should be hefty fine for vehicles with smoke despite have an emission certificate from testing centers. this creates the doubts in our mind that these emission testing centers are actually doing their job properly

    Increasing the forest cover is great. More than first these guys should protect what's already available..As usual a wasted words and tax payers money..no action

    Jaliya Monday, 16 July 2018 05:09 PM

    What he said and what he meant was absolutely contradictory .... His plan was to increase the number of human population by 32% in to Knuckles forestry ... he is the leader of misleading information.

    Suneth Perera Monday, 16 July 2018 05:22 PM

    Right step. It will be a great thing for our future generation and our president will go into history as a great leader who step up to protect our sole.

    Shan, you pay few hundreds , to emissions centre chaps , you'll get a clean sheet. You turn anywhere in SL , the only language known is fraud. All authorities are in hand in gloves acts. So corrupt.

    Gummay Baiya Monday, 16 July 2018 06:58 PM

    Most illegal loggers and poachers in our village are linked to the area MP, politicians, police officers. So how will anything change?

    Ach Tuesday, 17 July 2018 09:25 AM
