* Tense situation at Colombo main rail station as workers protest opposition MPs' visit on fact finding
Mon, Aug 11, 2014, 11:12 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Aug 11, Colombo: A tense situation prevails currently at Sri Lanka Railways Head office at Maradana as railway workers protest a visit by a group of main opposition United National Party parliamentarians.

The group of UNP parliamentarians is on a fact finding mission to the main railway station as part of their initiative to visit state-run institutions to expose corruption and other limitations in their services.

UNP MPs Harsh de Silva, Eran Wickramaratne, Ajith Mannapperuma, Ajith P. Perera and R. Yogarajan have reportedly entered the Railways Head office.

Last month the workers at the Sapugaskanda oil refinery protested a similar visit to the refinery by a group of 10 UNP parliamentarians and the MPs had to cancel the tour and return.

Earlier the group came under attack when they visited the Mattala international airport and Hambantota port.

However, they were warmly welcomed at Norochcholai coal power plant and National Zoological Gardens at Dehiwala.
