A tensed situation arose when police presented a notice to stop a construction at a land in the Manikkamadu area in Ampara.
This area has been considered as an area which belongs to the Deegavapi Temple.

The area is also considered as an archeological site. A year ago, permission was given to construct a rest house for visiting pilgrims.

Today (02) a group of Buddhist monks from the Ampara area has visited this land to clear it to start the construction work.

Then a group of police officers arrived here and told them to stop the work saying that they have a court notice.

Several Eastern Province Ministers also visited the site and urged the police to stop the construction work.

Thereafter, the Buddhist monks agreed to stop it after having a discussion with the police team.
