Residents of Ambakandawila village and surrounding villages in Chilaw staged a protest demanding to repair Chilaw – Iranawila road this morning.
They said that a foundation stone was laid in conjunction with Deyata Kirula Exposition in Kuliyapitiya last year.
However, a protestor stated that the construction work has not commenced thus far.
Later the protest was called off after a secretary of the Deputy External Affairs Minister promised to resolve the issue within 2 weeks. Pic By - Sumudu Jayamanna
