June 06, Colombo: A Sri Lankan government minister is accused of compelling students to protest against a local government.

Sri Lanka's Livestock and Rural Community Development Minister Arumugam Thondaman is accused of persuading the students of a school in the Nuwara Eliya district to boycott classes and demonstrate against the Talawakelle -Lindula Urban Council.

The allegation at the Minister was leveled by the government and opposition councilors of the Urban Council and also the employees of the local government.

The students of Talawakelle Tamil School protested the urban council for attempting to build a cluster of 30 shops in the town. The school community claimed that the land on which the shops are to be built belonged to the school.

The students blocked the Hatton - Nuwara Eliya main road from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
