Local potato farmers engaged in a protest this morning blocking the Meepilimaana area along the Nuwara-eliya Horton Planes Road.

 

This was demanding the government to suspend the import of potatoes and to increase the purchase price of local potatoes.

 

Traffic along the road was also hindered as protesters even burned tires on the road.
