It would be a timely decision to acquire excess supplies and money of the temples which have a high income and allocate it for the benefit of temples in rural areas, a senior monk said Sunday.


Venerable Wanawasi Rahula Thero, founder of the Jathika Namal Uyana, made this remark while speaking at a press conference held in Anuradhapura.


Rahula Thero pointed out according to reports, the money some temples receive as a donation per a day exceeds Rs.3.5 million.


“In the meantime, the monks of some temples don’t even have robes to wear,” he added.


The Thero also went on to say he stands with the government in this effort, if the authorities would implement a proper method to manage the process.
