Muthuhettigama creates another buzz

Controversial UPFA MP Nishantha Muthuhettigama is in the news again after he is alleged to have removed an iron railing which was at the newly opened Galle bus terminus.

Mr. Mutuhettigama had removed the railing after private bus operators on the Galle-Hikkaduwa route suspended services on Wednesday demanding that the railing be removed because it prevented commuters from boarding Hikkaduwa-bound buses.

The bus operators said because of the railing, commuters boarded the Ambalangoda or Baddegama-bound buses instead. Private bus operators on other routes had also joined the strike by Wednesday afternoon.

Mr. Mutuhettigama had handed over the section of the railing he had removed to the Galle Municipal Council but this action had irked Southern Province Chief Minister Shan Wijeya Lal De Silva who later told the media that he did not approve of what had happened and added that problems could not be solved arbitrarily.

“The Galle Central Bus Terminus was constructed at a cost of Rs.400 million. The queues for both the Hikkaduwa and Ambalagoda bound buses are located on one platform. The private bus operators suspended bus service claiming that passengers to Hikkaduwa boarded the Ambalangoda buses. We had decided either to locate the two queues on different platforms or to close the entrance at Gamini Mawatha. However, before we could do as decided, the MP has removed the railing without Municipal Council approval, the Transport Authority or the Transport Ministry,” Mr. De Silva said.

    In todays life we need instant result. Dear Southern Province Chief Minister Shan Wijeya Lal De Silva, better you keep quiet or you leave your post and go home. when did you decide and what have you done so far, you can be described as a barking dog, because the Honorable UPFA MP Nishantha Muthuhettigama has done part of your job. you should have brought about a solution much earlier, instead you are finding fault with him. you say the Galle bus terminal was built with a Astounding Amount of 400Million, but "The queues for both the Hikkaduwa and Ambalagoda bound buses are located on one platform". who is fooling whom my dear. we are not fools.

    SARATH Friday, 22 July 2011 01:58 AM

    what Mr. Muthuhettigama did is correct. We are the people who are useing this bus stand. Most of the people who made the comments not seen the Galle Bus Stand. They have a different political agendas. Even they have not seen Muthuhettigama. But they say he is "modaya", "pissa". But we from Galle know he is a practical Guy.
    Understand - we have given preferential system to select the most suitable person for their district, mainly to their electoral area. So Galle people have done that. As far as we are concern Muthuhettigama is straight forward M.P.
    Please don't make comments without knowing actual situation. Do your UNP or JVP at the next Election in 2016.
