Police fired tear gas and used water canons to disperse protestors who staged a protest at the Indian Consulate office in Hambantota against the port and airport projects.
Joint Opposition members Namal Rajapaksa, D.V. Upul, Arundika Fernando, Kumar Welgama, Mahindananda Aluthgamage and Chamal Rajapaksa participated in this protest.
This happened after Hambantota Magistrate Court yesterday issued a restraining order preventing protests by MP Namal Rajapaksa and D.V. Upul in the vicinity of the Hambantota Port, Indian Consulate and the roads leading to the Hambantota Port today.
