Beggars, stray dogs hamper development Featured

Beggars as well as stray dogs and cattle have become a big problem in the development of Colombo city, says megapolis minister Patali Champika Ranawaka.

According to him, the city has around 600 beggars, more than 2,000 cattle and 20,000 dogs living in the streets.

This will have to be overcome when developing the city, he adds.
