Women commended the addition of special railway carriages for females.

The national programme of adding special carriages to the train in conjunction with International Women’s Day took place this morning at the Veyangoda Railway Station under the patronage of Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation Services Arjuna Ranatunga.

At the same time, another programme to allocate a special railway carriage for women was carried out at dawn today at the Kurunegala Railway Station. This was done by State Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation Services Ashok Abeysinghe.

On this occasion the State Minister said that male individuals will not be permitted to travel in these special railway carriages.

Anyhow, due to a male entering a special railway carriage allocated for women at the Galle Railway Station at dawn today, a heated situation arose.

Our correspondent said that railway officials who explained the facts to this individual had brought the situation under control.

At the same time, a Sri Lankan woman was selected for the International Courageous Woman Commendation which is awarded annually by the government of the United States of America.

The Chairperson of the Women’s and Children’s Bureau in this country Marini De Livera received this award in Washington yesterday from First Lady Melania Trump.
