Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe has assured that the government will not allow any terror group to disrupt today’s celebration of Vesak.   

A statement from the Prime minister’s office said adequate security would be provided to all temples today and tomorrow.

   
“Prime Minister has assured that the government will not allow any terror group to disrupt the celebration of Vesak and security has been provided to all temples following the advice of Mahanayaka Theras. Those who were engaged in violence 21 days after Easter Sunday were also trying to prevent the celebration of Vesak and their effort has been foiled. No Extremist or opportunist will be allowed to disrupt the celebration of Vesak,” the statement said quoting recent speeches made by the Prime Minister.   


Meanwhile Eksath Jathika Bikkhu Peramuna National Organizer the Ven. Ambanpola Gnanaloka Thera told a media conference that the Bodhi Puja which would be held at Temple Trees on May 19 would be opened to the public. He said both the Prime Minister and his wife Maithri would participate in the Bodhi Puja.
