Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe says that the government won’t allow the terrorist to destroy the Vesak festival just like they destroyed the Easter Sunday services and that full police protection would be given to the areas where the festival is celebrated.

He said this speaking to the media today (14) during his visit to Kuliyapitiya which was wracked by communal violence over the past two days.

He also said that the police and armed forces have been given the full power and authority in order to protect and establish peace in the country and that this decision was made at the cabinet meeting held yesterday (13) night regarding the communal conflicts.

“We are hoping to take necessary decisions at the cabinet meeting with regard to providing reliefs for the people who are affected by the attacks,” he said
