A proposal presented by the Kirinda-Puhulwella Pradeshiya Sabha to remove the name of ‘Mangala Samaraweera Pedasa’ and replace it as ‘Lindagawa Watta Mawatha’ in Puhulwella, Matara, was passed today with a majority of three votes.
Seven Pradeshiya Sabha members representing the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna voted in favour while three members and one member representing UNP and SLFP voted against the proposal respectively.
The proposal was presented following a petition handed over by the residents of Puhulwella to the Pradeshiya Sabha Chairman with 110 signatures calling for the removal of Minister Mangala Samaraweera’s name from the road.
The passed proposal is to be sent to the South Province Governor Rajitha Keerthi Tennakoon. (Krishan Jeewaka Jayaruk)

It is a bad habit to name roads and institutions after living persons. In Germany, as is customary in Western democracies, streets are generally not named after living persons. Among other reasons, because in many cases this is considered a characteristic of personality cult in a dictatorship.
