President Rajapaksa has issued instructions to provide maximum facilities for the people who arrive in Kandy in view of the Esala Perahera.
Arrangements are afoot to hold the Esala Perahera Festival on a grand scale. A discussion was held at the Kandy President’s House last evening in this respect. Lengthy discussions were held on the provision of sanitary facilities including other infrastructure and the implementation of a traffic plan in the City. Attention was focused on ensuring safety of the people.
The Government hopes to provide an opportunity for the people to view the Perahera sans any obstacles. The Diyawadana Nilame and the Basnayaka Nilames of the Dalada Maligawa, Parliamentarians and Government Officials attended this meeting
