A group of farmers are engaged in a protest at this moment at Gonaa-golla on the Ampara Kandy road, complaining that their paddy fields were not irrigated for Yala season.

Farmers of Galapita-gala, Gonagala and Sinna-waththa have joined the protest which blocked the Ampara Kandy road for traffic.

Later Uhana Divisional Secretary Ajantha Kumari arrived in Gonaa-golla and discussed the matter with the protestors but the discussion was not a success.

The Divisional Secretary informed the farmers to grow inter-crops instead paddy as sufficient water cannot be supplied this season.

Our correspondent said that farmers showed objection to the Divisional Secretary’s proposal.
