    Why did not call the representatives who protest against destruction of any forest left, particularly that Venerable Pahiyangala thera, Mr. Namal Karunarathne, etc.

    AG must also summon the complainants to ascertain the facts. If however the culprits involved in the destruction have Political backing, AG or the CG of Forests can't do anything!

    AGs thinking and action is good but I believe he is overstepping his limit

    CG will become the fall guy for the political bigwigs and if removed from office, no replacement will be appointed and in that vacuum even more destruction will happen

    AG is summoning the Conservator General to find out how much horse shit is left in the stable since the horses galloped away a long time ago. So you can imagine how this country is sinking in the shit by the day under this set-up.
