Three-wheeler drivers across the island are taking part in protests as they demand the cancellation of the increase of the minimum fine to Rs. 25,000 for seven offences.

One protest is held near the Nelum Pokuna Theater in Colombo. They are marching to the Presidential Secretariat to hand over a memorandum.

Hiru Correspondent said the protest march has caused heavy traffic in the area.

Meanwhile, private bus owners and trishaw drivers staged a protest in support of the strike by blocking the Negombo Colombo main road this morning.

Our correspondent stated that the train services were also disrupted due to the protest held near the Galkanda Railway Station.

A group of trishaw drivers staged another protest in front of the Uva Provincial council this morning.
