Heavy traffic has been reported from several areas in Colombo due to three separate protests, the Police said.

The road from Borella towards Narahenpita, was congested as a group of drivers from training schools have launched a protest outside the Department of Motor Traffic (RMV) against the privatization of driving licenses.

Police said Maitland Place in Colombo was also congested due to a protest carried out by a group of unemployed graduates demanding employment in the public sector near the Ministry of Public Administration.

Meanwhile, Lotus Road in Colombo is also congested due to a protest march by the Inter University Students’ Federation (IUSF).(Indika Sri Aravinda)
