Such a protest was staged by the Mahaa Sangha and residents against another betting centre situated at the Kaekiraawa town on 21st this month.

Earlier too owners had to cease from launching a new race by race betting centre  at the Kekirawa town due to protest from the Mahaa Sangha and residents.

Meanwhile the Mahaa Sangha and residents staged a strong protest on 18th of this month against a race by race betting centre run at the Tambuttegama town.
