Health Minister Rajitha Senaratne says he opposes the ban on glyphosate to be removed.
 
The Minister said this in Parliament yesterday (Mar. 22).
 
The Minister revealed that a group is working eagerly to get the ban on glyphosate is removed.
 
"I fully oppose the move", the Health Minister said.
 
He said that Ven. Rathana Thera tried hard to convince the authorities to ban glyphosate during the previous regime.
 
The Minister revealed that the attempt was successful with the election of the present government.
 
Meanwhile, MP Ven. Athuraliye Rathana Thera said it is wrong to remove the ban on glyphosate saying it is being demanded by the masses.
 
Expressing views at a media conference held at the Parliamentary Complex recently, the Thera said that most of the experts who talk in support of the weedicide have been bought out by the companies.
 
The Thera said he would even join the Joint Opposition if they voice against the removal of the ban on glyphosate.
