Constitutional protection should be afforded to Sri Lanka’s flora if the ecosystem is to be protected, His Eminence Malcolm Cardinal Ranjith said.

He added that by safeguarding the country's ecosystem, water resources will become a major source of income for Sri Lanka in the future.

The Cardinal expressed these views during a courtesy call by Foreign Minister Dinesh Gunawardena at the Cardinal’s official residence today.

“Our country is being deforested on a large scale by now. It has to stop and the government should take necessary steps to formulate a programme to protect forests in accordance with the Constitution itself. Laws should be enacted to severely punish those who destroy the flora in this country. If the ecosystem of the country could be protected by doing so, our water resources would be in great demand, in future world water shortages” the Cardinal said.

Commenting on this, the Minister said that President Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s programme is dedicated to rescue cities from being oxygen deficient and that environment friendly activities are included in the village-by-village development programme.

    One brother is saying one thing and the other is doing sonething completely contrary. We will never develop like this. Just the politicians and businessmen will prosper.

    This Cardinal is losing his head as he wants to be seen and heard all the time . Time to shut up And open his mouth and disclose Easter bombers rather than bluffing

    Is Cardinal suppressing important news by making these statements to support the Govt?
