The protest march organized by the Joint Opposition which was scheduled to commence from the Kandy town will now commence near the Gatabe temple today.

The Kandy Magistrate issued an injunction order against the protest march organized by the Joint Opposition and the campaign to promote membership by the UNP in Kandy today.

Magistrate Buddhika Sri Ragala issued the order, after the police informed that the two rival gatherings could cause clashes, thereby inconveniencing the general public.

Having considered police complaint, the magistrate ordered the Join Opposition to conduct their protest out of Kandy city limits and the UNP to hold their campaign after 2pm in the afternoon.

Magistrate Buddhika Sri Ragala also permitted the members of the Joint Opposition to visit the Temple of the Tooth and perform religious rites before they start the protest.
