Some farmers in Dimbulagala, Polonnaruwa today set their paddy fields on fire.

They claimed they had to make this decision because the Mahaweli Authority officers failed to provide water for their paddy fields despite many requests. Pix by Nimal Jayarathne

    Are they following the footsteps of the doctors. Will these farmers ask for car permits too?

    This is the worst ever photo I would have seen in my life. It brought TEARS to me. If Parliamentarians keep living in LUXURY life, people may be pushed to do such thing..

    Who cares? Priority should be given to look after ministers families.

    When there is milk poured in the streets, paddy set on fire, and other destructive protests, it is a red flag to the government. Get ready for routing at the next election.

    What a shame Mr President. Is this how you care for the poor farmers?
