President Mahinda Rajapaksa today said that the government is not intending to convert the Colombo Municipal Council and the Dehiwala-Mount Lavinia Municipal Council into an authority but are looking at means to make the administrative structure of those local bodies more efficient like in Delhi, while there would be an elected body as well.

    Please don't even think of making like Delhi, they made a mockery of things when organizing the recently held Commonwealth Games.

    This corrupted Dehiwela MC should scrapped, this council has no consistency , even the building plans are approved in adhoc manner. Some are allowed to raise more than 5 floors were as others are not allowed go beyond 4.

    efficiency?! - then firstly the executive presidency and the parliamentary system should be changed.

    Yes, everyone talk that we want to become like Singapore Malaysia.. It is very good indeed..! But the question is does any one want to follow the laws like in those counties..?

    In Singapore, NO STRICKS ARE ALLOWED: NO POLITICS IN UNIVERSITIES: EVERY CITIZEN MUST COMPLETE THE NATIONAL SERVICE TRAINING: FREEDOM OF SPEECH IS LIMITED: EVERY MEDIA HOUSE MUST RENEW LICENSES EVERY YEAR: NO OPPOSITION PARTY OR LEADER ..! How nice...!!!

    Singapore or Malaysia did not develop with human right.. Lee Kwan Yew and Dr.Mahathir were kind of DICTATORS in both countries..! But they had a vision for the nation..! They turned that vision in to realities.. See now those counties...! Let MR to do the same..!
