Maning Market traders protest over new stalls

Traders of the old Maning Market in Pettah today (07) staged a protest adjacent to the Presidential Secretariat.

They charge that they were injusticed when allocated stalls at the new Maning Market complex constructed in Peliyagoda.

Noting that theUrban Development Authority had promised to provide one shop each to traders, they add that the stalls provided were half the size of a standard shop space.

Traders called for justice to be served while also stating that the protest had no political involvement.
