( November 29, 2014, Colombo, Sri Lanka Guardian) The cutouts put up in many parts in Colombo have resulted in a Rs. 21 million loss of revenue to the Colombo Municipal Council (CMC).
This revelation was made by the ruling party of the CMC, the United National Party (UNP) at the Council's sessions yesterday (27).
The President's cutouts have been put up in Colombo without the payment of any fee to the Council.
CMC members have stated that such actions in fact brought disgrace to the governing party.
Meanwhile, an employee of the Road Development Authority (RDA) has been captured on camera pasting posters of President Mahinda Rajapaksa.
The BBC has reported that the RDA employee is attached to the Authority's Chilaw office.
The photograph was taken on Thursday (27) morning in old Madampe town area.
