Mar 10, Colombo: Kandy district UNP MP Ananda Aluthgamage has started a protest a laying on a main road demanding the immediate transfer of the Nawalapitiya police OIC Ananda Rajapaksa.
MP Ananda Aluthgamage has arrived at Nawalapitiya at around 5.00 am today (10th) and started his protest sleeping on a white pedestrian crossing on the main Nawalapitiya-Kandy road in front of the Nawalapitiya police station for about two hours, state media reported.
Nawalapitiya Police directed the traffic on the main road onto alternative routes while the MP was sleeping on the road.
The Gampola Police ASP and SP in charge of Gampola Police Division came and held discussions with Ananda Aluthgamage but he has refused to give up the protest until the Central Province DIG comes and offers him a proper solution.
The MP alleges that the Nawalapitiya OIC has failed to fulfill his duties properly.
