Amazing! Had the time to finish this starting from the 8th of January, Last year!
Exactly my first thought. Was hoping for once these jokers will print the fact as to who and when this project was initiated. They dont know the meaning of fair play. It all blame blame blame and that is all they know.
Why is it opened By Sirisena? Has Mahinda been invited for the ceremony, I am sure even invited he wont attend. My personal opinion, he should not, let the people ask why?
This sort of a buildings want suit Sri Lankans. Soon you will see underpants hanging from cloth lines etc. It will look like a squalid refugee camp like our universities. This is due to lack of primary education.
This building complex is a disaster. It is meant to house residents from slums so that land occupied by them could be given to sleazy Indian investors for development.
Each of the units in these flats will most likely have one toilet/bathroom combined and the family living will be compelled to form a line in the mornings for occupancy.
The wastewater disposal system (sewer) will collapse within weeks due to overload, intrusion of external objects and under-capacity of receiving network.
I wonder how garbage is to be disposed by the residents?
I wonder how the shared ares in the buildings are to maintained?
I urge the Minister for Megapolis, Hon Champika Ranawaka (the only forward thinking and capable Minister in the Sena-Singhe Govt) to initiate a complete re-think on social rehabilitation and not to follow the disastrous policies of the R family Govt and the GR lead Urban Development Authority.
Nice to see MS done some developments. Great work….
This is the reason Ranil said we have started the developments…
Do you people who are running down the building and the people who will be living this complex feel better putting people down the way you do.
Yes some people in Sri Lanka do not have any idea how to keep their homes and surrounds clean and tidy. If you guys can remember Colombo and the surrounding suburbs were so dirty a few years back and the MR clan turned it around in a few years and the capital was looking great because the leaders took the initiative. Can not say the same about Colombo any more.It is up to the people in charge to make rules and make sure the tenants of these new complexes follow the rules so that it will remain in mint condition for a long time.
Dear S Fernando,
It is quite to easy to make rules; the cost to implement rules will run in to millions.
Not only the cost but implementation will lead to significant corruption.
Occupants of these building will be compelled to palm off a couple of hundreds to the Inspectors to encourage the Inspectors turn a blind eye towards the underpants hanging out in the balconies !
What we require is not another set of rule books but social regeneration that will bring about responsible social behaviour. Ven Galgoda Atthe Gnanasara and his organisation were in the forefront of social regeneration in the past but now, his enthusiasm has been extinguished.
