Opposition Leader Ranil Wickramasinghe states that the government is increasing the prices of goods in order to pay foreign debts.
He made this statement during the protest named "The Oppositions Protest" held in Kandy today.
However during the protest our correspondent reported that the divide in the UNP is quite evident.
A group of supporters of the deputy leader of the UNP Sajith Premadasa had requested a speech from him, yet this was not entertained by the party leadership.
In response to this, the group of supporters has made a protest while shouting anti government slogans near the Kandy clock tower.
Such an incident was reported in a previous protest held in Panadura as well.
