A separate area has been allocated outside the presidential secretariat in close proximity to the Galle Face Green for protesters to carry out protests and demonstrations, police said. 

 It has been introduced by the Police and the Ministry of Defence and named as “Agitation Area’, in a bid to ease traffic congestion in Colombo caused by protests. This has come into operation with effect from yesterday considering the inconvenience faced by the people during the times of protests.   Police said this area would be allocated for the protesters to carry out their demonstrations and protests.   


“Necessary action will be taken if any protest is carried out inconveniencing the general public and causing hindrance to their day-to-day activities,” it said.   
The burden borne by the motorists during the time of protests would also be lessened with this and ensure the smooth flow of vehicular traffic.  


Meanwhile, police sources said discussions are underway in view to locate another area to carry out protests, probably adjacent to the Town Hall.
