President Maitripala Sirisena says that in development, environmental laws are ignored not because of ignorance but because of commercial goals. 

The President said that therefore environment should be protected as a humanitarian duty.

President Maitripala Sirisena said so while addressing the National Green Awards ceremony in Colombo yesterday.

President stated that so far we have not found solutions for the garbage and solid wastage problems.

He pointed out that it is because of institutional aloofness.

Therefore on this occasion the President also emphasized the importance of creating a combined programme of the relevant institutions.
