Buddhist temples to switch off lights on Poya Day to protest tariff hike?

Buddhist temples to switch off lights on Poya Day to protest tariff hike?

 

A proposal has been presented to the Central Province Maha Sangha Sabha to turn off the lights within all temples across the island on Vap Full Moon Poya Pay, protesting the increase of electricity tariffs at religious places. 


Ven. Galaha Sirisantha Thero also expressed that they have a strong suspicion that it is also a conspiracy to keep temples in the dark during the season of Vesak and Poson Poya days, adding that it will not be possible to switch on lights in the temples in near future in view of the current situation. 


“Today we are making a suggestion to turn off the lights in all temples and leave the temples in dark on the upcoming Poya Day, protesting this issue together with the Dayaka Sabha.
