A lone protester, Balakrishnan Sasikumar, started walking from Talawakelle Estate to the Galle Face protest site yesterday (3) to join the demonstrators demanding the President and Prime Minister’s resignation.

He started the march at 9.30 a.m. carrying the Sri Lankan flag and passed many towns where he was applauded. After three days of walking, he is expected to join the demonstrators tomorrow (6).

Several upcountry officials applauded Balakrishnan, including President of the Chamber of Commerce Pushpa Vishwanathan, on behalf of the Kotagala City Traders.
