Parliamentarian Namal Rajapaksa, expressing his views on the rising number of elephant killings in Sri Lanka said, the government was taking no action to reverse this trend.
"It's unfathomable that this many elephants in #SriLanka have been killed this year. The Gov. was quick to arrest even Buddhist monks for having elephants at temples, yet they are taking no action to stop this needless killing of our most unique #wildlife treasures," Rajapaksa said, in a tweet, yesterday.
According to the statistics Rajapaksa has quoted 123 elephants have so far been killed this year.
The most number of elephant killings is reported from the Northern and North Central provinces.
The government, however, replaced the Wildlife Ministry Secretary in the light of allegations against the country's Wildlife authorities. Douglas Nanayakkara, previously the Secretary to the Special Assignments Ministry, has been appointed the new Wildlife Ministry Secretary.
