Magalla beauty destroyed due to a pile of scrap metal

The Southern Province Chief Minister Shan Wijayalal de Silva has called for the removal of the collection centre for scrap metal which is discarded from homes in the Magalla area, which is destroying the beauty of Galle.

Expressing his views on this issue, Southern Provincial Councilor Nalin Hewage said, “The service to remove old metal from homes and collect them is a good measure and it is environmentally friendly. But, is it done systematically? Certain measures should be taken to beautify the city. This pile of metal is located at the Southern Expressway entry point and the tourist zone. We are not asking that they remove this facility, but it should be prepared methodically, ensuring that the beauty of the area is not destroyed. The Galle Municipal Secretary should take measures in this regard.”

These details were revealed at the Galle District Coordinating Committee meeting which was attended by the Southern Province Chief Minister Shan Wijayalal de Silva, Galle district MP Wijepala Hettiarachchi and several others.
