A tense situation has erupted outside the private residence of President Gotabaya Rajapaksa as protesters are trying to break the barricades and enter his premises with one barricade already taken down by the angry public. 

The Daily Mirror learns that President Rajapaksa is not present in his home at the moment. 

Security has been beefed with army and riot police deployed outside the President's house.

A power cut is presently underway in Mirihana.

    This is not the way to handle the situation in the country. It only tarnish our countries image and give us more and more trouble.

    The thiefs must not be allowed to run away.... Hold them back and their helpers... Punish them as a lesson for the next batch not to start robbing as well. Disgraceful thiefs who rob the poor who vote for them innocently.

    Sri Lanka is a valuable country which can be a profitable country if we have harsh punsihments first and foremost for thiefs.. Like Singapore only educated people who have studied and have university qualifications must be allowed to contest to Govern a country..not people who have been running convenient storrs in usa
