To pay tribute to Mahatma Gandhi on his 150th birth anniversary, a special programme was held at the Presidential Secretariat in Colombo yesterday (10). President Maithripala Sirisena and High Commissioner Taranjit Singh Sandhu offered floral tributes to the portrait of Mahatma Gandhi, a media release issued by the High Commission of India said. Gandhiji had a deep connection with Sri Lanka which is highlighted by his extensive travels across the Island in 1927.

Celebration of Gandhi Jayanti each year in Sri Lanka is hence a dual celebration of Mahatma’s birth anniversary as well as the celebration of his connection with Sri Lanka.
