A group of residents whose lands were acquired for the extension of the Southern Expressway from Matara to Mattala, launched a protest at Sooriyawewa junction today.  

 Our correspondents stated that roads leading to Hambantota and Ambilipitiya were congested for over four hours due to the protest.

The protesters complained that authorities have failed to compensate them as promised.

Subsequently, a tense situation erupted as the Sooriyawewa Divisional Secretary attempted to discuss the matter outside of his office.

Later, 10 protestors were selected among the crowd for a discussion with the Divisional Secretary.  

During the meeting, the Divisional Secretary informed the participants that the valuation reports have already been sent to the relevant authorities.
