Large crowds attended a protest that took place in front of the All Ceylon Buddhist Congress headquarters in Colombo yesterday (10) against its president Jagath Sumathipala, who is accused of misusing the ACBC assets and running an anti-constitutional administration.
The demonstration began at around 2.00 pm and continued until 5.00 pm.
A group styling itself as the organization to protect the ACBC organized the protest.
Its president Sudath Devapura charged Sumathipala had no official status to hold presidency of the ACBC, and claimed the position belonged to him.
