The Government says that no decision has been taken to ban Pandols and Dansal on Vesak and Poson Poya Days.

The Government Information Department said that certain media reports quoting Minister of Buddhist Affairs Gamini Jayawickrama Perera to that effect were fake news.

It goes on to say that it is more suitable to engage in spiritual activities on Vesak and Poson Poya days and hence only a request was made that it would be appropriate not to have pandals and dansals on those days.

However, a ban has not been imposed.
