The protest staged by three manpower workers on a Telecom tower in Colombo Fort is being continued.

The protest began at 10 am this morning but no authorized officer has visited the protesters even after 10 hours have passed since the protest began.

One of the protesters told our news team that they will continue the protest until a written pledge is issued citing that they will be absorbed to the permanent cadre.

Meanwhile, Deputy Minister of Power and Renewable Energy Ajith P Perera said during a media conference this afternoon that 3 thousand 828 manpower workers of CEB will receive their letters of appointment from the President tomorrow.
