The Students of the Trincomalee Campus of the Eastern University had engaged in an attention drawing Protest. They have blocked the Konesapuri road of the Trincomalee Campus and undertaken their protest. They had undertaken this protest while President Maithripala Sirisena had made a visit to the Campus to declare open the New building of the Science Faculty and to lay the foundation stone for the new auditorium.
The struggle had been undertaken in protest against the non-fulfilling of their demands.
President Maithripala Sirisena had landed in the ground behind the Faculty and had gone in through the rear door and participated in the said event and returned though the back door. As the students had blocked the street before and after the events, traffic through the road was affected. Other guests utilized alternate paths. Riot Squads and STF provided tight security to the President.
