The protest, which began around 3 p.m. went on for nearly an hour.

The JVP, a self styled radical Marxist party emerged as a powerful third force in Sinhala politics with sixteen MPs at the general elections on 5 December last year.

JVP which draws on Sinhala nationalist sentiments to augment its popularity has said that it will oppose tooth and nail any federal solution to the ethnic conflict in the island.
