A tense situation was reported in Thambuththegma a short while ago following a protest carried out by a group of farmers.

It was reported that the protesters had thrown stones at the Police Station of Thambuththegama and the Police had fired tear gas in return to disperse the protesting farmers.

The farmers carried out the protest against a move to use water from the Rajanganaya Tank for a water supply project. 

It was further reported that some of the Police personnel attached to the Thambuththegama, Thalawa, Eppawala, and Anuradhapura sustained minor injuries when protesters threw stones at them. (Nandana Saman Kumara)

    What a mess... Protests,protests and more protests This country will never progress at the rate people keep protesting and taking to the streets at the drop of hat (to put it in refine language)What is needed is a drastic change to the mindset of our citizens who now think such behaviour is great; Some of the protesters actually do not even know why they are out there in the first place... We Sri Lankans are progressing in the wrong direction instead of acting with common sense and responsibility we stoop to tribal behaviour when it comes to settling issues affecting our livesPerhaps our ancestral genes are becoming dominant M.P.
