A court case has been filed against the Kelaniya Pradeshiya Sabha by area residents of Manelgama, Kelaniya.

The case which has been filed at the Mahara courts arraigns charges against the Kelaniya Pradeshiya Sabha against the arbitrary disposal of garbage in the Manelgama area.

It is reported that recent demonstrations by area residents made it impossible for authorities to carry out the collection of garbage in the area.

However area residents of Kelaniya have been immensely inconvenienced owing to the stagnation of garbage in the area.

When inquired from Kelaniya Pradeshiya Sabha Governing Party MP Lanka Wijitha Kumara it was noted that the disposal of garbage in Manelgama had been suspended for a period of two months.

However area residents of Manelgama noted that the Kelaniya Pradeshiya Sabha is once again drawing up plans to dispose of garbage in the area.

Indika Kumara Asela, a member of the organisation formed against the disposal of garbage in Manelgama states that several environmental issues have cropped up as a result of garbage being disposed into the area.
