Sri Lankan Army retains road blocks as people continue to suffer from flooding
The people of Omanthai Town in Vavuniya district have complained of immense hardships as a result of persistent Sri Lankan Army (SLA) road blocks and check points.
They have expressed their disappointment because the SLA has not eased its rigorous routine checks in consideration of the flood disaster that has struck the region.
Further residents of the Town said; although the SLA is fully aware of whom local residents are it persists on checking them for several hours while they are about their daily routines.
The complaints intensified as the SLA stopped a group of civilians returning from a function in Vavuniya Town on Wednesday. They were refused them access to their homes and were forced to spend the day with their relatives.
