Women only train compartments launched at Veyangoda railway station 700 01

Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation Arjuna Ranatunga and Monitoring MP of the Ministry Hirunika Premachandra graced the launch of train compartments for women only at Veyangoda Railway Station to mark the International Women's Day on Friday, March 8.

Monitoring Parliamentarian Hirunika Premachandra took part in the train journey, while Minister Arjuna Ranatunge was not allowed to get into the compartment at the Veyangoda Railway Station.

Addressing the event, Minister Arjuna Ranatunga said:

“During our schooling, we had train compartments dedicated for women. Later, however, the service was lost. However, once again, many people have asked to have separate compartments for women. That is why we started this service today. Steps have been taken to deploy the Railway Security Officers in these compartments.

But I emphasize one thing here. We are a nation that has a special respect for women. We call our Mother as the Buddha at home. We have a responsibility to protect women who give life to us. It is the responsibility and the need of the hour."
