An unidentified man is currently staging a protest on top of a hoarding post near the Viharamaha Devi roundabout in Colombo this morning holding up banners of President Mahinda Rajapaksa.
The protestor, who has a helmet on, is urging President Mahinda Rajapaksa to address some of his grievances, eyewitnesses said. He claims in posters in his hands that so far the authorities have turned a blind eye to his requests but has not mentioned what those demands are.
Police officers at the sight said that they have already informed the fire brigade to arrive in order to reach the top of the post and attempt to bring the protestor down. (Daily Mirror online)
