January 5, 2014   12:18 pm

A large gathering of Buddhist monks and laymen marched through the streets of the Embilipitiya town this morning protesting against Prime Minister D.M. Jayaratne.

The protest march commenced at 8.00am today from the Kawantissa Rajamaha Viharaya in Embilipitiya while shops located in the town were reportedly closed and black flags hoisted in support of the stir.

The protesters condemn the Prime Ministerís allegedly derogatory comments regarding the Leader of the Jathika Hela Urumaya (JHU), Ven. Omalpe Sobitha Thero and demand that a new minister be appointed for the Ministry of Buddha Sasana and Religious Affairs.
