The ‘Janabalaya Kolambata’, anti-government protest campaign organized by the joint opposition is scheduled to be held on September 5 in Colombo at 2.00 pm and the venue of it will be announced on the day of protest.
Namal Rajapaksa MP representing the JO, met Muslim cleric association the All Ceylon Jamiyyathul Ulama (ACJU) this morning to inform of the mass protest, in bid to garner support of the minorities.
Namal Rajapaksa said later that the ‘Janabalaya Kolambata’, protest march would be carried out in a peaceful way.
Addressing a news briefing, he said the protest march had been organized in a way that no harm would be caused neither by the general public nor to public property.
“The Government is spreading rumours that the JO protest would bring inconvenience and trouble to the general public. It is obvious that the Government is scared of this protest because they know that this protest march would become a challenge to the Government,” the MP said.
“That’s why they are in a move to sabotage this protest march,” the MP added.
