The joint opposition today launched a protest themed ‘Two Years of Gloom’ (Muusala Dewasara) against the completion of two years of the government at the Lipton Circus causing heavy traffic in Colombo.

Joint opposition member parliamentarians, representatives of several other political parties and trade unions participated in the protest.

The protesters urged the government to immediately hold the elections and to prevent the alleged suppression of university students. The protesters also demanded for the immediate withdrawal of the government. (Kalathma Jayawardhane)
