MP Ven. Athuraliye Rathana Thero today (19) slammed the government over its failures in implementing the organic agriculture policy.

While defending the organic agriculture concept and the need for it to be implemented in the country, the Thero charged that the government leaders had implemented it in an arrogant fashion without proper consultations with stakeholders.
