Retail and wholesale merchants of Ampara town-ship staged a protest this morning complaining that the increase in VAT has affected their businesses. Our provincial correspondent stated that many shops in Ampara are closed due to the protest.

The protestors marched to the clock tower from regal junctions and lit crackers while jeering in front of shops that were open for business, despite the protest.

Meanwhile a group of Eastern Provincial Councillors including the Chairman Chandra-dasa Galappaththi met the protestors.

Protests against the increase in VAT were held at Anuradhapura, Badulla, Bandarawela, Katugas-thota, Kelaniya, Galle, Matara, Maharagama and Gampaha over the last few days.
