The Jana Satana Paada Yathra organised by the Joint Opposition was passing Maligawatte a short while ago on its fifth and final day.
The procession commenced its fifth day at the Kiribathgoda town this morning. Originally the JO wanted to march up to the Hyde Park Ground, Colombo for its final meeting. However, the Colombo Municipal Council has today started reconstruction work at the ground, with the use of backhoes and laborers.
Heavy traffic was reported in the Town Hall area and the roads leading to Union Place because of the Jana Satana Paada Yathra organized by the joint opposition. The march is heading towards the Lipton circus and MPs Prasanna Ranatunga and Mahindananda Aluthgamage were at the location.
