The National Sangha Council staged a Satyagraha at the Colombo Independence Square on Wednesday (22) demanding that certain Ministers be removed from their posts.

Namely, the monks demanded that  Minister Rishad Bathiudeen and Western Province Governor Azath Salley, as well as the Easter Province Governor M.L.A.M. Hizbullah, be stripped of their duties.

The Buddhist monks later marched towards the Presidential Secretariat and handed over a letter addressed to the President.
