May 30, Colombo: The organizing committee of Sri Lanka's premier development exhibition Deyata Kirula has decided to change the venue of the next year's event.

Accordingly, the earlier plan to hold the exhibition in the Ruhunu University premises was changed and a location near the Kamburugamuwa hospital complex in the planned new city of Matara has been selected as the new venue.

A student union of the Ruhunu University of Matara protested the plan to have the exhibition in the university premises. In response to the student union, Minister of Higher Education, S.B. Dissanayaka vowed that the exhibition would definitely be held in the university premises.

However, the chairman of Deyata Kirula organizing committee Minister Ranjith Siyambalapitiya said that the change of venue was not due to students' protests but due to some logistic issues.

The Matara - Kataragama road, the main road by the university needs to be closed for 10 days for the exhibition and the organizers have found it difficult to build new alternate roads immediately, the Minister Siyambalapitiya said.
