President Gotabaya Rajapaksa has met with a group of protesters near the Presidential Secretariat in Colombo today (07).

Workers assisting in the government’s dengue prevention programme had engaged in a protest near the Presidential Secretariat, stating that the former government had employed them under contract basis and that those appointments have been suspended.

President Rajapaksa made a surprise visit to the site of the agitation and met with the protesters. He reportedly assured them that they would be included in the government’s programme to create 100,000 new employment opportunities.

The protesters had then cheered the President as he left the site and returned to the Presidential Secretariat.
