The National Iron Suppliers organization staged a protest this morning in Madampe demanding the government resolve several issues they have faced due to the removal of the tax by the previous government.
The protesters commenced their protest at Sudu-wella in Chilaw and arrived up to Madampe Town and blocked the Colombo- Chilaw Railway line. They demanded the new government to provide solutions to the problems arisen due to the removal of tax.
The protesters say due to the removal of the import tax the iron and discarded material of local suppliers are either not purchased by the manufacturers or purchased for low prices.
The protesters request the Government to pay attention to these problems and find solutions.
