Owners of these vehicles have brought this to the notice of the Government Agent Vavuniya S. Shanmugam. He had planned a meeting in this regard with the representatives of the security forces scheduled for last evening (5)
Since the security forces failed to give them prior notice of this arrangement they were forced to be stranded in Vavuniya since Sunday, the owners complained.
Since train services have been suspended between Medawachiya and Vavuniya, people who arrived in Vavuniya on various errands were unable to proceed beyond since all other forms of transport between Vavuniya and Medwachchiya too, were banned until further notice.
