New location for Aragalaya: Presidential advisor | Sri Lanka News


A new location which is in line with the developing world will be provided for the youth to get on with their protest activities, Presidential advisor Sagala Ratnayake said  today.

He said a location adjacent to the Floating Market in Pettah will be given to Aragalya shortly.

“This centre will have facilities for art exhibitions, literature festivals, IT technology and a  facility for conferring,” Mr. Ratnayake said.

He said this will also help to get a commercial value for the abilities and talents of the youth. Those youth who were engaged in protests are the ones who are blessed with talent and potential and this new centre will facilitate further to develop their skills. He recalled how the youth displayed modern technology such as three dimensional effects at the Presidential secretariat.

“The plans to develop this centre will be handed over to President Ranil Wickremeisnghe soon,” he added.

He said some of the Aragala youth who met President Wickremesinghe recently  welcomed the move to allocate a location near the floating market for their aragalaya etc. (Yohan Perera)
