Residents blame government's Uma Oya Multipurpose Developmental Project after wells dry up, and people staged a protest on Friday demanding the resumption of construction on the project, which has been temporarily stopped.  

The demonstrators obstructed the Colombo-Monaragala, Wellawaya-Beragala, Beragala and Wellawaya-Ella roads for over an hour. Our reporter said that the police later interfered to reinstate the flow of traffic.
