COLOMBO (News1st): A tense situation arose when irrigation officers attempted to halt construction work at the Manabharana wewa in Siyambalanduwa on Thursday.

The irrigation department had approved funds worth Rs 3 million for the construction of the wewa, a week before this year’s parliamentary election.

Reconstruction work began later but was halted citing a lack of funding.

The protestors dispersed after a coordinating officer of the irrigation minister had assured that reconstruction activities will resume.
