Grama Niladharis demand solutions

The Lanka United Grama Niladhari Association and All Ceylon Independent Grama Niladhari Association say that the Grama Niladharis are facing great difficulties as they do not have the basic health equipment such as face masks and gloves.

It also alleges that the Grama Niladharis who are conducting a number of emergency services have not been given any fuel allowances and telephone allowances.
