ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ Wanted to make some updating regarding the issue.

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ As we got to know from our sources on-site (in Digamadulla) , the demolitions at Piyangala quarry were ceased due to pressure exercised by the mass organizations and by villagers. Further we noted that also Ven Ellawala Medhananda Thero intervened to protect the Piyangala site.

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ Our sources were unable to clarify about the damages caused to the Pre-Historic Veddha frescos. But, they identified other ancient inscriptions (sel lipi) are locating just 300-250 meters away from the main demolition site. They were present also during the geological monitoring and said that the vibration rate was at about 10.6 units (a higher rate). These data clearly shows that further demolition can damage remaining inscriptions and fresco designs permanently .

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ Finally , the mass demonstrations, formidable media work and extensive pressure exercised by patriotic monks, organizations and by persons have been able to stop this national crime at least for this moment.

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ Updates will follow——ƒÆ’†’ƒ”š‚
