Lorry drivers who transport sand in the Nuwara-Eliya district engaged in a protest in the Nuwara-Eliya town this morning.
The drivers expressed their dissent against the law which makes it imperative to obtain a permit to transport sand.
The government recently introduced regulations which relaxed the transportation of sand devoid of permits.
In stark contrast to this statement it was mentioned by the police last week that permits should be re-obtained in order to transport sand.
Owing to this, transporters of sand state that they have been thoroughly inconvenienced.
