The Commissioner had advised the organizers to obtain permission from the relevant institutions if liquor is to be sold during the festival while nothing could be done which will have ill effects to the Sri Lankan society.

According to the Commissioner , CMC officers have checked the venue of the show last morning and have found out that changes have been made.

Christian Youth League which staged a protest on Thursday urged the relevant authorities that the objective of the musical show is to promote a satanic cult  a devil worshiping cult) and to ban all such cults in Sri Lanka.(Yohan Perera)
