The government has taken the expected u turn on spa closure ban policy taking fire across the board. We applaud the correct decision and hope everybody involved learned a lesson. For the record we maintain that the spa ban was politically motivated and was a knee jerk reaction by the government following the 23rd December big demo. The opposition did not call or ask to ban all spas across the country and the big demo was not organized by radicals or extremists. Rather it was popular sentiment reacting against an unresponsive political climate.
It is our hope that political parties involved will refrain from inflaming political tensions and will not take actions which will damage the tourism product of the country.
