An awareness programme to educate the public against spitting and littering on the roads will commence over the next few days in order to seek the support of the public to keep the city clean and if that fails legal options will be considered.
Special Commissioner for the Colombo Municipal Council (CMC) Omar Kamil speaking to Daily Mirror online said that existing laws to curb littering and dirtying the streets were weak and so legal action cannot be taken to stop this kind of behavior.
“First we will hold the awareness programmes to educate the public regarding what they can do to keep the city clean. We will educate the public that they too have a role to play in keeping our city clean and beautiful. If all else fails legal options will be sought, he said. (Daily Mirror online)
