Fishermen in the Puttalam delta engaged in a protest today.

According to our correspondent, the fishermen were protesting against the construction of power- lines across the Puttalam delta from the Norochcholai coal power plant to Anuradhapura.

The fishermen charge that by doing so,  fishing activities would be hampered.

Our correspondent added that as a result, the fishermen refrained from fishing activities Friday.
