Those inconvenienced charge that no officials have intervened regarding the issue making their plight even more abysmal.
Around 50 housing units in the Meethota-mulla/23-Waththa & Dahampura areas
are on the verge of destruction unable to withstand the pressure exerted by the sinking mound of garbage.
Homes in the area are even faced with the threat of frequent flooding owing to the mounting pile of garbage.

Meanwhile when the area was toured by our news team area residents expressing their views stressed that they would have not ended up facing
such a grim state if Parliamentarian R. Duminda Silva was present.
