Farmer Organisations, The Deshahithaishi Organisation and the Hela Urumaya representatives trekked to the Seenigama Devalaya to invoke the Devas to reveal the persons who debunked the arsenic story.
The Galle District Parliamentarian from UPFA Nishantha Muttuhettigama too participated in this ceremony.
Athureliya Ratana Thero, Sobitha Thero and Wimal Weerawansa along with a near thousand participated. Their main intention was to curse and bring the wrath of the Devas on those behind the arsenic story.
Their intended targets included the companies that imported fertiliser, Minister of Agriculture Mahinda Yapa Abeywardene, Secretary Agriculture Ministry, Registrar for Fertiliser Imports, Chairman ITI and Victor Ivan Editor-in-Chief of the Ravaya newspaper – totalling 13 in number.
