By L.B. Senaratne
President Chandrika Kumaratunga said yesterday the Government was duty bound to develop the Sri Dalada Maligawa.

Addressing the Diyawadana Nilame and the Basnayake Nilames of the four devalas at President’s House in Kandy, the President promised to look into the scarcity of elephants for the perahera and the problems confronted at the Getambe ferry where the water cutting ritual is held.

The newly elected Diyawadana Nilame Pradeep Nilanga Dela Bandara and Basnayake Nilames H.M. Navaratne, Ranjith Ellegala, Mohan Panabokke and Rohan Paranagama called on the President to report the successful conclusion of the Kandy Esala Perahera. Premier Mahinda Rajapakse was also present.
