Protest over arbitrary water cut disrupts train servicesa


Residents of Mihindupura Housing Scheme in Dematagoda yesterday staged a massive protest near the Dematagoda railway station as they had been severely inconvenienced due to the prevailing water cut which had continued during the last one week.

Rail services were disrupted due to the protest.

The protestors claimed though they had paid their water bills on time to the Urban Development Authority, it had not paid the dues to the Water Supply and Drainage Board and as a result they were imposed with an arbitrary water cut.
