South African Bowler Dale Steyn, who is in Sri Lanka for the upcoming cricket matches, said he was ‘super impressed’ with Colombo and said the condition of the city had improved since his last visit in 2006.

“Streets are clean, roads are good and parks are well looked after. Great to see a massive difference compared with 2006 when I first toured here,” he tweeted.

    Yes, but we need to look after them need to improve further . This country has a lot of potential if they are no politicians.

    Thank Gotha who spearheaded the development of Colombo.

    Samantha Monday, 09 July 2018 11:36 PM

    Dont spread lies. yes, Gota did some cleaning and gardening in Beira lake area. Thanks for that. How ever it was initiated and planned by the then UNP Govt. in 2002.Later Chandrika didnt let it to finish and desolve the parliment in 2004. It was RwW who invited Surbana of Singapore and initiated under Moragoda.Gota knows nothing about Urban Planning.

    Ijazahmed Monday, 09 July 2018 07:58 PM

    Don't thank anyone.. thank ourselves.. the citizens.. we paid for everything.. inclusive of the commissions...

    Lokka Monday, 09 July 2018 08:44 PM

    Yes, certainly it improved after 2006 because of Gotabayas'efforts. But it halted since 2015 and now there is visible decline.

    GH Tuesday, 10 July 2018 12:00 AM

    May GOD BLESS H.E MR and H'ble Gota!

    Viahwalingam M Tuesday, 10 July 2018 12:07 AM

    We need Gota's vision and can do attitude again.The speed was.amazing. And suddenly no litter.

    Wise Donkey Tuesday, 10 July 2018 08:32 AM

    Why nobody is talking up about the real 'clean up' Arjuna Mahendran did?
