The police have arrested two JVP members while distributing leaflets on the proposed 18th amendment among people in the Nuwara Eliya town.
The party last week launched a leaflet distribution campaign to create awareness among the public about the government’s proposed constitutional amendments and its adverse impact on the country.
JVP sources said that among the two party members arrested by the police are a JVP candidate for the local government elections. The police had arrested the two JVPers yesterday.
They had been detained at the Kandy Police last night and released without any charges.
Meanwhile, two JVP members were also arrested by the police in Jaffna while pasting posters about the 18th amendment in the Jaffna town a few days earlier.
