The protest launched yesterday by the National Force for Protecting War Heroes Rights, demanding that the proposed service pension be granted, continues on today.   

The protesters started the demonstration from Fort Railway station last morning and marched towards the Presidential secretariat.

Later, six members of the group were allowed to enter the Presidential Secretariat to hand over a petition.

Meanwhile, the road leading to Galle Face from the Lotus Roundabout was closed off due to the protest.
