Views of members of the Maha Sangha are being entertained for a new Bill drafted on behalf of the upliftment of the standard of the Buddha Sasana.
Prime Minister D.M. Jayaratne had a meeting with members of the three Nikayas at his office today. In addition to the Bill, discussions also centred on the establishment of a Sangha Council. Talks also dealt on several matters including the drafting of a Sangha Charter and amendment of the Vihare – Devalagam Ordinance. Under the new programme, it is planned to draft a bill within one month.
