More support for Rathana Thera
A protest was held at the Weligama bus stand yesterday demanding the removal of M.L.A.M Hisbulla and Asath Salley from the posts of Governors and Rishad Bathiudeen from the post of Industry and Commerce Minister.
Protestors also wished Ven Athureliye Rathana Thera who is on a fast unto death opposite the Dalada Maligawa, good health and courage to continue the fast.
This protest had been organised by the Weligama Viharadhipathi Association, Weligama and Welipitiya Sasanarakshka Bala Mandalayas. A large crowd extending their support to the Buddhist Monks who were leading the protest was seen carrying posters and banners demanding the removal of Governors Hisbulla and Asath Salley and Minister Rishad Bathiudeen from their posts.
The protest which lasted for about one hour dispersed with the chanting of Seth Pirith by the monks.
