Person who came for Janabalaya ... dies of heart attack!
81 drunk casualties warded in hospital!
Protest misfired because of lack of alcohol?

A person who came to Colombo for the 'Janabalaya Colombata' rally had died from a heart attack, Colombo National Hospital sources news say.

The deceased is a resident aged 38 years from Hatton. In the meantime it is reported that 81 victims were found collapsed on the road, highly intoxicated and later dispatched to hospital. It was Suwaseriya ambulance service that had been used to take them to hospital and Deputy Minister Ajith
P. Perera spoke about this in a humorous tone yesterday.

Provincial organisers had supplied parcels of food and alcohol to drink to people who had come from afar and as some had gone over the limit and had collapsed, a situation where they were prone to be trampled by those walking in the procession had occured and as a result they were admitted to hospital until they came back to normalcy, it was understood.

Whatever it is, though daytime alcohol was provided, those who attended the satyagraha around Lake House at nighttime were not provided this item as decided by the organisers and perhaps as this very reason the night time programme has misfired and the crowd had dispersed, putting an end to the protest.
