The Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) staged a massive protest march in Colombo today (16) over the rising cost of living in the country, increasing prices of commodities and the various shortages. Party supporters had converged to the capital for the rally despite the court orders obtained seeking to prevent the protests and the roadblocks set up at various entry points to the city. Opposition Leader Sajith Premadasa and other SJB parliamentarians also joined the protest. (Pic By - Sanjeewa Lasantha)
