Ja-Ela Grama Niladharis staged a protest in front of the Ja-Ela Divisional Secretariat on Saturday morning against harassments that they are undergoing in the hands of thugs. United Grama Niladhari Association President Kamal Kithsiri said that the Grama Niladhari was the first point of contact for ordinary citizens but they lacked proper protection to carry out their duty. He said they lacked resources and avenues to complain about those who come against them while on duty.

“The country boasts a Civil Law. But we have no place to turn to whenever we are undergoing harassments,” he said.
