Protest against senior Minister Athauda Senevirathna : Video
Residents of Batawala, Weththewa and Delgaha-goda in the Mawanella area staged a protest opposite the office of Senior Minister Athauda Senevirathna today.
The protesters demanded that the minister solve a year-old drinking water problem of the people living in these three villages.
The protesters told our news team that politicians have promised them to solve the drinking water problem but have so far failed to keep their promise.
Later the Minister had met some representatives of the protesters and promised them to discuss the matter on the 9th of this month at the Mawanella Divisional Secretariat.
Our news team attempted to contact the Minister to comment on the drinking water problem but the minister had joined a meeting at the Kegalle District Secretariat.
