SRI LANKA - One of the most important requirements at present in our country is appointing a responsible person or authority for Animal Welfare. According to some facts at a recent press briefing there is no responsible minister/ official or authority for animal welfare.

A Bill drafted on animal welfare is travelling here and there with no one to present it in Parliament. When the Bill lands in one place it stays there for a long period because the specific subject is not included anywhere.

There is a possibility of bringing this Bill into Parliament as a private Bill.

Since the newly passed Tobacco and Alcohol Control Act has paid back well, it is important to bring the Animal Welfare Bill into Parliament soon. The recently introduced Tobacco and Alcohol Control Act has done a significant service to the people’s moral and physical uplift.

This important matter was brought to the notice of the media by an NGO which works for animal welfare - The Animal Welfare Trust, Sri Lanka. Have you ever heard any positive comments on any NGO work in Sri Lanka? This is it. We have to see good as good and evil as evil. The Animal Welfare Trust is playing the game according to Sri Lankan culture and religions.

It acts according to the requirements of Sri Lankans and not according to their own agenda or an agenda set by a foreign agent.
