Estate workers protest again today (pics)

Estate workers had staged protests in many areas today demanding that their daily wage be increased to Rs. 1000 or grant them the Rs, 140 allowance that was deprived during the increments.

Due to protestors staging their protest blocking the Hatton-Bogawanthalawa main road for around three hours from 9-12, the traffic on that road was hampered.

Further, a group of estate protestors from the Thalawakele-Lindula area had staged a half hour protest from 11.30-12.00 noon blocking the Hatton-Thalawakele Dayagama main road.

A group of estate workers from the Maskeliya Queensbery Estate had also staged a protest opposite the Superintendents official bungalow.
