Leader of Indigenous People Uruwarige Wannilla Aththo has cautioned that the whole world would be destroyed if the environment is not protected.
He was speaking at the seminar held at Matara under the patronage of ‘Right to Life’ organization. The theme of the seminar was ‘Destruction of central hills – the future death of the country.’
He continued that a kilo of rice that was Rs. 5 or rs.10 seventy years ago has risen up to Rs.125 at present. Any clearance of jungle or mountains, even it is for cultivation, causes destruction.
