Residents of Dalatura continued to protest for the second day today against dumping Colombo Municipality garbage to a private land in Muturajawela Mash at Ja-Ela.

A tense situation erupted between the protestors and garbage truck drivers as the entry road to the dumping site was blocked.

Later, several police teams were called to control the situation.

Deputy Minister Nimal Lanza who visited the scene also joined the protestors against the dumping of garbage.

Although dumping of garbage temporarily stopped for 4 hours, Colombo Municipal Council started dumping garbage again in the site around 3 o’clock in the afternoon.

Meanwhile, heated words were exchanged between UPFA minister Chandima Weerakkody and UNP MP Wijepala Hettiarachchi over collecting garbage in the Galle town yesterday.

The argument occurred during a meeting held under the patronage of Provincial council Minister Faizer Mustapha at the Southern Provincial Council Chief Minister’s Office.
