Officers and workers attached to Colombo Municipal Council withdrew from their duties and engaged in a demonstration this morning (Mar. 05) against the removal of their Commissioner, V. K. A. Anura.
 
Based on the recommendations of the Presidential Commission Report on the collapse of the Meethotamulla garbage dump, the Municipal Commissioner was removed by the Western Province Governor on 2nd of March.
 
However, the Chairman of the CMC Trade Union Federation, W. A. Karunadasa said that the Commissioner was removed to please political needs.
 
Meanwhile, UNP MP Mujibur Rahman met the demonstrators at the Colombo Municipal Council premises this morning.
 
It is alleged that Minister of Provincial Councils and Local Government Faizer Mustapha has played a role in dismissing the Municipal Commissioner.
 
Although we attempted to get a response from the Minister, it was unsuccessful.
 
Meanwhile, the Western Province Governor’s office said that engineer Lalith Wickramaratne has been appointed as the acting Municipal Commissioner of CMC with immediate effect.
