UNP to continue agitating

The United National Party (UNP) says it will continue to agitate against the high electricity tariffs both inside and outside parliament.
UNP MP John Amaratunga said that parliament sittings were adjourned today when the UNP had protested against the electricity tariffs.
However he says at the UNP group meeting today it was decided that the protests will continue and public awareness programs will also be held in this regard.
The MP also said that UNP MP Ranjan Ramanayake was attacked during parliament proceedings today by the government benches using water bottles.
Parliament sittings were eventually adjourned when UNP MPs took to the well with candles as a mark of protest to the high electricity rates.
Parliament sittings were adjourned yesterday as well after UNP members took to the well and protested over the recent electricity tariff hike. (Colombo Gazette)
