Disabled War Heroes continue protest

Disabled War Heroes continued their protest for the fifth day yesterday opposite the Fort Railway Station. A group of disabled War Heroes began a fast unto death demanding service pension. 

 The disabled War Heroes who retired before their due retirement day said Cabinet approval has been obtained to grant them the service pension but the government was delaying the implementation of this decision.
Organisation to Protect the Rights of War Heroes President U.B. Wansantha said no government representative has so far met them to discuss their problems.
