    Was there a single Sinhala-Buddhist Deshapremi leader ? No. If we had simply one man for one year this problem wouldn’t have arisen.

    5,000 homes sans toilets in Welikanda

    By Leon Berenger and K. K. Ariyadasa (Dambulla)

    Some 5,000 people, living in 25 villages surrounding the Welikanda-Polonnaruwa Divisional Secretariat region, are without toilet facilities and are forced to use the open exposing them to the threats of serpents and even wild elephants, a top regional official conceded yesterday.

    “This problem has been there for many years and most of the families live in wattle and daub abodes bordering thick forests that are infested with wild elephants, serpents and other animal species,” Welikanda-Polonnaruwa Additional Government Agent (AGA) M.M. Hairu Nisha said.

    “These people could be located in the villages of Welikanda, Pollonnaruwa, Singhapura, Nagastenna, Mahaweli Thenna, Aselapura, Mahindagama, Nawa Menikdeniya, Mahasenpura, Kurulu Bedda, Maithrigama, and Kalingagama.

    “While some of the people use tents made out of polythene and tin sheets, as makeshift toilets that are without roofs, others use umbrellas on rainy days while using the toilets,” she added.

    She also said that the lack of toilets for some 5,000 people is a fact and they are currently working on some projects to provide water for their sanitary needs but there are several hurdles towards this end.

    “It would be highly appreciated if would receive donations from members of the public, private organisations and philanthropists in a bid to construct moderate toilet facilities.

    “Another issue is that a large number of people are not permanent residents of the area, they are known to have moved into the area from other places for whatever reason and now we are looking into that matter as well.

    “Apart from the toilet issue, the villagers also lack other primary needs such as safe drinking water, roads, and better housing facilities among others,” Nisha added.

    She further said that this toilet problem was mostly experienced in the Sinhala and Tamil homes and it was not an issue with the Muslim houses.
    “The simple reason for this that wealthy Mulsims and related organisations have come out to help their community faced with this problem, but it is not the same with the other ethnic communities,” she lamented.

    She added that she put a stop to foreign donors intending to help the Muslim community in the region such as building toilets and other complexes since it violates the law of the land.

    “Any fresh constructions, let it be a toilet, drain or even a culvert, must receive prior approval from the local authorities and these donors had avoided that procedure.

    Therefore, it cannot be allowed and it is up to the relevant authorities to address the matter at the very earliest,” Nisha further said.

    Randeniyage is spot on. We Sri Lankans boasted about our sanitation facilities and ridiculed India. But now we lag behind India thanks to our politicians who built ports without ships, airports without planes, stadiums without matches, power stations without power, highways without drainage, irrigation schemes without water, reconciliation without peace, etc. That too with massive foreign loans.

    Indians can now make fun of more Sri Lankans (15%) (as a percentage) defecating in the open than Indians (4%).

    “The available government data shows that by November 2018, 96.25% of homes had their own toilets.

    This is up from 38.7% in October 2014.”

    “https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-india-46400678”

    Just imagine the massive improvement in their quality of life.

    Now look at pathetic Sri Lanka.

    “The latest official figures show that nearly 15 percent of the 21 million population have no access to toilets and classified as “open defecators,” or those using the open environment to relieve themselves.”

    Sri Lanka is cursed with politicians who are thinking the western way. Big things, loans, loans, loans and local people’s basic needs are not visible as these problems are not there in the west.
