Foreign emissaries who attended final Wesak festival ... stranded without bus transport to go to hotel

It was Ampitiya Hotel which had been reserved for lodging on behalf of United Nations Wesak Day Commemoration Festival being the final festival held in Kandy. This crowd who came from Nepal, Cambodia and Thailland having joined in the festival in Colombo had prepared themselves to travel by train to Kandy and then to proceed to their place of stay at Ampitiya Hotel where they were expected to stay by being transported in buses
from the said railway station.

However, what the organisers had planned in advance was to provide the same buses given to the guests in Colombo for the town of Kandy as well. Under this plan while the emissaries were on their way to Kandy, those buses were on their way along the bus-route from Colombo to Kandy. Anyhow since the train happened to reach Kandy before the scheduled time, this crowd had stayed at Kandy Railway Station and have had to await the buses from Colombo. The Deputy Inspector General of Police of Central Province who understood the inconvenience faced by them had taken steps to get down several air-conditioned buses and thus provide necessary transport facilities. This situation had arisen because of poor decisions taken by the organisers. If the police did not mediate in this instance, the inconvenience they so faced in Sri Lanka may have turned into a serious problem.
