The Mahanayake of the Malwatte Chapter the Most Ven. Thibbotuwawe Sri Sumangala Thera has said that the finger cannot be pointed out only at the present Government with regard to the collapse of the garbage mount as the Meethotamulla garbage was an issue that prevailed for several years.
Only two years had passed since the present Government assumed office. As such the Mahanayake Thera pointed out that there was no sufficient time for it to sort out this issue. The Malwatte Mahanayake expressed these views when Deputy Speaker Thilanga Sumathipala paid a courtesy call on him. The Mahanayake called on everyone to unite in solving the problems of the Meethotamulla people at this juncture without attempting to achieve political mileage.
The Deputy Speaker said that proposal to bump garbage in Puttalam was made by the previous Government, it was not launched as it was not a successful scheme. The Deputy Speaker was accompanied by Central Province Chief Minister Sarath Ekanayake.
