Sun, Apr 20, 2014, 01:30 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Apr 20, Colombo: Prime Minister and Buddhist Affairs Minister of Sri Lanka D.M. Jayaratne will table a bill on the conduct of the country's Buddhist monks (Maha Sangha) in parliament.

Addressing a function held to open a Dharma Salawa (hall) at Hurikaduwa in Menikhinna Jayaratne has explained that the bill, known as the Sangha Kathikawatha, will be tabled in parliament to protect the dignity of the Maha Sangha and prevent persons from defaming the order.

He has observed that some people who had donned robes were bringing disrepute to the entire order by misusing the name of the Maha Sangha.

Jayaratne has assured that all these could be prevented once the bill was passed.

According to the Prime Minister, the bill had the blessings of the President, the Mahanayakes and the Maha Sangha.
