Gas for rose

- Advertisement -

young Sri Lankan girl offered a rose to police officers who were manning the barricade leading to Parliament on Friday (8) afternoon.

The parliament premises was heavily guarded as over the past few days Sri Lankans have been protesting around the premises against the President and the Government, and even all members of Parliament.

The rose was offered at a time when a large group of people was in fact protesting at the same place against the President, and the government.

However, later, the students were tear gassed by the Police and were also hit with water cannons by the Police.

The students are engaging in the protest demanding a solution to the country’s economic crisis and against the current regime.

Meanwhile another protest organized by a group of youth was held in Kurunegala today (08).

Our correspondent noted that the youth had traveled to the Wilboda area where the Chief Government Whip, Minister Johnston Fernando’s private office is located.

Police had set up roadblocks and tightened security at the Puwakgas junction, and subsequently, the youth returned to the Kurunegala town and continued their protest.
