Rain came and went ,Then Floods came and gone .Garbage heap in Metthotamulle was washed down ruining houses and created health hazard

Megapois had mega  plans to solve the problem .Called Requests for Proposals from bidders to submit investment proposals to treat the garbage and generate power .

All of them asked government to pay a tipping fee” for taking in the garbage for treatment as the investment is quite high .

In other countries the state pays the companies for receiving the garbage as the state can collect money from households by way of charging higher rates .

Megapois is reluctant to pay a tipping fee and no investor will come

Let us wait for the next monsoon and ever growing mountain OF  Meethotamulle which is an eyesore will become a monument of stupidity,shortsighted policies and ignorance of the ministers and managers in Megapolis .

One day it will collapse and come down like the mountains in Aranayake or even explode like Salawa ( due to Meethane gas generated inside the heap) and burry the poor and we will declare a week of national mourning.
