Vadamaradchchi traders hold demonstration

[TamilNet, Friday, 29 July 2005, 15:38 GMT]
Traders in Vadamaradchchi division in Jaffna district Friday morning held a demonstration that they are not provided any assistance by the Sri Lankan government to rehabilitate their industry suffered due to tsunami, sources said.

Hundreds of traders gathered at the Polykandi junction in Vadamaradchchi and went in procession via Sea Beach Road and College Road to the Point Pedro Divisional Secretariat. They handed over a memorandum to the Divisional Secretariat officials. They later handed over copies of the memorandum to Divisional Tsunami Special Task Force and Vadamaradchchi North Fisheries Federation.

Traders' representatives said they would organize sit-in-protest with the support of businessmen from Thondamannaru in Vadamaradchchi North to Katkovalam in Point Pedro if the government fails to provide necessary assistance and compensation to rehabilitate their livelihood, sources said.
