The National Collective Organization staged a sit-in-protest in front of the Indian High commission in Colombo today to mark the 26th anniversary of Indo-Lanka Pact.

Our correspondent said that the protest started at 9am and continued for about an hour.

The vehicular traffic on the Galle road from Galle Face to Colpety was blocked due to the protest.

During the protest, a Working Committee member of the National Collective Dr. Wasantha Bandara said that the government should take prompt action to nullify the 13th Amendment.

He also demanded that India should stop putting pressure on Sri Lankan government on the strength of the Indo-Lanka Pact which introduced 13th Amendment to our Constitution.
