The ‘Jana Satana Paada Yathrawa’ organized by the joint opposition is currently moving through Ganethenna area in Mawanella, causing severe traffic congestion along the Colombo- Kandy main road.

The march led by former president Mahinda Rajapaksa began around 10.30 am with an estimated 10,000 supporters participating.

During the march an ambulance which was attempting to get through the crowd was attacked damaging the side mirror of the vehicle.

Prior to the start of the march at the Getambe Temple, the Peradeniya Police informed those who had gathered to desist from violating the court orders issued yesterday (27).

Our reporter said the Traffic Police are not taking measures to ease the severe traffic congestion which had occurred as a result of the protest march.

Large crowds attended the rally led by former President Mahinda Rajapaksa which will culminate in Colombo on August 1st.
