Sri Lankan MP asks to be appointed as Minister of Monkeys. Reveals reasons.

Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna MP Dilan Perera claiming that it was essential to find a solution to the persisting issues surrounding wild monkeys in the country, said he is willing to accept the post of Minister of Monkeys.

Speaking to reporters, MP Perera said that wild monkeys have destroyed nearly 60% of crops in various areas, including in the Badulla district.
“Do not think that only the Badulla district is affected by wild monkeys. The animals can be seen in Colombo as well. Wild monkeys have been reported in areas such as Maththegoda. If we do not address this issue the wild monkeys might enter Parliament’, he said.
