Garbage disaster –CM faults Prez,PM and minister …….News item

Appearing on Sirasa Pathikada anchored by Bandula Jayasekera yesterday morning Devapriya faulted the high powered ministerial committee that included both President Maithripala Sirisena and Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe for the crisis. At the onset of yahapalana administration, Premier Wickremesinghe headed the committee. Subsequently, President Maithripala Sirisena joined the decision making outfit responsible for advising the cabinet of ministers.

Devapriya alleged that the committee had handed over the management of the Meethotamulla garbage dump to Megapolis and Western Development Ministry headed by yahapalana heavyweight Patali Champika Ranawaka at the expense of a well studied project backed by the Central Environment Authority as well as the Waste Management Authority.


I wonder whether finding a  scapegoat for this disaster will help to solve the problem. We have a calamity situation and garbage is now  transported to Muthurajawela were CMC is dumping the 7-800 tons in the  200acre land which I identified earlier as a suitable location .

My proposal given which given 2 years back .was  to use dry garbage from Meethotamulle to fill the 200 acre land with combination of sea sand which is already available in the site. UDA .CMC and Megapolis should have agreed to that ,and ,this disaster could have been avoided .

After part clearing of Meethotalmulle to accommodate baling raw garbage could have been  carried out  in situ and send to Muthurawela for  storage until Processing Units are installed by Koreans and other investors.( Western power who was given the right to process has not been able attract an investor so far and the original promoter during previous government has sold the project to a blue chip company ,which is more keen to generate liquor rather than processing garbage )

I sent this proposal to CM also .None of them took notice

Now CM and Ministers are  trying to pass the buck will not solve the problem

CM  is also talking about CECM chaired by PM and blame them for  disregarding his proposal to use a UK based company to take over garbage project .He should have implemented what I proposed  instead .


CMC will continue to dump the garbage in the new site and the government is still dilly dallying ,an infighting among each other .

We have experience with CECM, where various decisions were made by the committee where President overruled them or the respective minister disregarding the orders from CECM .

I hope Sarath Fonseka will be the Pied Piper of Hamln and take over the dirty jobs” like dealing with Trade Unions in time to come .

As a contemporary Anandian among Royalists I will gladly help him !

    Absolutely not. Fonseka must not be appointed to this civilian job which will result in mass murder, unbridled violence and crimes against humanity. We need brains not brawn to resolve this problem. Muthurajawela is a biodiversity hot spot. Disrupting its ecosystems is not advisable.
