Dengue-prone CMC public toilet

The public toilet located in Gemunu Lane, Awwal Zaviya has not been in use for a long time. This toilet was to be brought down some time ago with the roof only being removed and the balance demolition work coming to a standstill due to reasons not known. 

There is always some water stagnating during rainy days and with garbage getting accumulated in this toilet, it has become site prone for deadly dengue.

I hope that the Dengue Control Unit of the Colombo Municipal Council will take immediate steps to demolish this toilet and make the place safe (dengue free) for the people residing in the vicinity.

Enough power in the presidency for the right person

Friday, 23 August 2019

The presidency has not much power some say, but I would say there is plenty for the right person. By intention or otherwise, our Constitution leaves the presidency to be defined by the person occupying the chair. Maithripala Sirisena (MS) showed us t
