Over two million devotees who flocked to Anuradhapura sans checkpoints and road barriers bear witness to freedom the country enjoys, Anuradhapura Government Agent H. M. K. Herath said.
After 30 years of violence, President Mahinda Rajapaksa supported by warheroes has been able to establish peace and non-violence which is vital for the development process, he said. He was speaking after switching on the third and the final day of the Mihintale Aloka Pooja organized and sponsored by Lake House for the 48th year with the participation of Ceylon Electricity Board and Abans. Ven. Namalwewa Rathanasara Nayaka Thera performed the religious observances. The Government Agent said President Rajapaksa visited Anuradhapura a day prior to Poson and inspected personally facilities being arranged for the devotees.
