    Very good decision. Change every thing where the dirty politicians wanted their names on boards but used public money to build those.

    Next, Alwis Town to Hendala 01 or Wattala 01? Crazy. Ministers must spend your time to develop the country and build harmony, instead of wasting time on vanity activities.

    Any specific reason for the name change to Enderamulla 01 ?

    When this new ward was renamed as Akbar Town, people did not like it as reported by one of the news papers. The reason was the existing Akbar Town closer to Ederamulla was well known drug peddling place and therefor, even the Muslims in Ederamulla disliked the name. Everyone wanted the Ederamulla to be named as Ederamulla back.
