A group of monks from the Polonnaruwa District and representatives of the United Farmers’ Organization handed over a letter to the Governor of the North Central Province, the Polonnaruwa District Secretary, and the Chairman of the District Development Committee today requesting a halt to the construction of the walking lane planned to be built along the Parakrama Samudraya.

They marched from the Dharmapala statue in the new town of Polonnaruwa to the auditorium of the District Secretariat when it was reported that the Polonnaruwa District Coordinating Committee was meeting to approve the lane.

North Central Province Governor Mahipala Herath, District Secretary, and other government officials were present in the auditorium when the group arrived at the scene.

However, when the monks and the representatives of the farmers’ organizations went to hand over the letter, a tense situation arose due to the presence of a non-responsible official to receive the letter.

Later, Polonnaruwa District Coordinating Committee Chairman Amarakeerthi Athukorala arrived at the scene and received the letter.
