Our reporter says the council was adjourned for a short while in order to bring the situation under control.

JVP Councillor, Nalin Hewage commenced this protest, citing that the Chief Minister had failed to properly respond to a  question posed by him on the taxing of shop owners at the Galle Bus Stop.
