The police used tear gas and water cannons to disperse a group of monks, who are members of the Ravana Balaya, who attempted to forcefully enter the Presidential Secretariat today.  

The monks were present at a protest march organized by the disabled soldiers demanding for a pension.  

Several disabled soldiers in the vicinity were also affected by the tear gas.  

The Lotus Road from Galle Face in Colombo is closed temporarily because of a protest march.

    according to the defence secretary they are discussing the issue with representatives from the disabled soldiers...the monks have nothing to do.. must be an easy life to just wear a robe, live on welfare and have no rules to follow.

    People act like Hooligans and expect to be treated like humans. Total respect to those who have lost a lot in the war but there are methods to dealing with such issues.
