Disturbance at Kalaniya Temple PDF Print E-mail

A group of people shouting slogans such as “the Kings is in our side, he is just a servant” “Glory to the SLFP” gathered at the Kelaniya temple when Gen. Sarath Fonseka visited the temple yesterday.

Last night they demanded to be allowed to come in to the premises but were prevented from doing so by the security officers of the General.

They argued that they have come to perform a religious right for an ill person and they should be permitted to come in because the Temple is public property. Two people also climbed on to a barrel and shouted all sorts of slogans and when the general was leaving the Temple they shouted loudly and the defence officials had to make a big effort to control them.
