Temple lands will be used to cultivate fast - Prelate

Most Venerable Thibbotuwawe Sri Siddhartha Sumangala Thera, the Chief Incumbent of the Malwatte Chapter says that a cultivation programme has been launched at all temples in the country as a solution to the impending food crisis in the country.

He said that cultivation programmes are being implemented in the temples and he hopes to encourage the people to launch the relevant programmes in the villages as well under the leadership of the Chief Incumbents of the relevant temples.

He was speaking to a group of academics who visited the Malwatte Temple to present a set of proposals for the revival of Sri Lankan agriculture.

The Thera said to avoid a food crisis in the future and to overcome this, all citizens should engage in cultivation as much as possible.

The Thera said initiatives will be made to make temples a model for facing a food crisis in the face of economic hardships.
