Thu, Nov 29, 2012, 08:03 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Nov 29, Colombo: Sri Lanka's Buddhist conservative movement Bodu Bala Sena today held a protest against the Archaeological Department for the alleged inaction of the Department against bulldozing of an ancient Buddhist shrine called Sagama Seya in Thirukkovil in Ampara.

Secretary of Bodu Bala Sena movement Galagodaaththe Gnanasara Thero said the Buddhist monks led by him would not leave the place until the Department of Archaeology promised in writing to install name boards at the Buddhist archaeological sites in the Eastern Province.

The Buddhist monks insisted a discussion with the Minister of National Heritages Jagath Balasuriya and the Director General of Archaeology Senarath Dissanayake.

The security staff prevented agitators entering the premises but granted the discussion they demanded for a group of representatives.

The agitators dispersed after the Minister and the official promised to install the name boards in January 2013.
