The Poson festival will be celebrated on a grand scale, Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe said today.
He told a group of monks and Ministers at a discussion that elaborate security arrangements will be in place for the Buddhist festival.
The Prime Minister also said that pandols which could not be erected during Vesak owing to the security situation in the country following the Easter Sunday attacks, will be erected for Poson.
The main Poson events will be held in Anuradhapura with the participation of hundreds of devotees. (Colombo Gazette)
