The National Force to Protect the Rights of War Veterans is still blocking the Olcott Mawatha in Colombo Fort as they demand the state to pay pension to differently-abled veterans of the tri-forces and the police who have served for less than 12 years.

All lanes of Olcott Mawatha have been completely closed off as the protesters are occupying the street.

Although police diverted traffic, traffic in neighboring areas such as Pettah, Bastian Mawatha, Amour Street, Maradana, Panchikawatta and Kotahena are severely congested.

Hundreds of office workers and members of the public, who commuted to Colombo this morning faced grave inconveniences due to the congestion that resulted.
