A hartal was staged in Trincomalee and its suburbs yesterday calling for the removal of Eastern Province Governor M. L.A.M. Hizbullah.   

The people who staged the hartal accused Governor Hizbullah of spreading terrorism and racism in the country.   

 Traders in Trincomalee, Serunuwara, Kantale and Thambalagamuwa closed their shops in support of the hartal while vehicular transport in the area also came to a standstill.   
Meanwhile, it was reported that a Sri Lanka Transport Board (SLTB) on its way from Trincomalee to Colombo had been attacked at the fifth milepost on the Trincomalee-Kandy Main Road by the protesters damaging its windscreens .   

Protesters burnt tyres near the China Harbour Junction and Sangamam Junction this morning.
