A ghastly stench emanates from the Beira Lake along the Perahera Mawatha near the Gangaramaya Seema Malakaya forcing scores of passers-by to cover their noses with utter repulsion. Pix by Damith Wickramasinghe
Yet another valid reason for the fact that SL need Gota back! During his time, city dwellers never experienced such a bad situation near Beira.

But we got the smell of a cesspit when he opened his mouth!

Colombo need a cleaner.not a killer.
johan Tuesday, 31 July 2018 09:02 AM
This is not the first time this place is stinking. CMC Officials are having a nap and they have no idea to plan and upgrade this area. This is a historical place in Colombo
DG Tuesday, 31 July 2018 04:03 PM
Stench is regular annual feature during dry weather seen for decades.

Another wonder of the paradise island !!! Lake smells as bad as the people in this land like no other !! Must be the sewage line from the parliament making the final mixture at the lake.

What's happening Ms Rosy Senanayake ???? You promised so many improvements in the city !!
wickremasinghe Tuesday, 31 July 2018 12:44 PM
Mrs. Rosy the mayor is still painting her toilets. She won't have any time to worry about Beira lake.

No Rosy smell? Miracle of Yahapalanaya.

Daily Mirror, what a shame to notice that vote base is manipulated here. Can see plus and minus manipulation on Gota related comments. What a shame!
Land like none other Tuesday, 31 July 2018 01:07 PM
How can we take a tourist into the city of Colombo with this awful stench?. Where is Rosy darling...all promises but nothing is done. Garbage is the order of the day. Get your act together YAHAPALANAYA jokers. Everybody wants Gota back for the wrong reasons.

Today most of lankan buddhist temples are not buddhist temples.go to inside of the temples abd see how bad and how anty buddhist activities doing in temples.
Ceylon Tuesday, 31 July 2018 02:24 PM
Where is rosy?.what a disgrace.she cant do even a cleaning job.stupid.resign.give it to asad sali.
Terminator> Tuesday, 31 July 2018 02:30 PM
I noticed many comments saying "We need GOTA" back. Shame! is he a garbage collector to clean this place?
Rasheed Tuesday, 31 July 2018 03:30 PM
So you expect Mrs Rosy to clean the mess. What we mean is that we need a good and strict administrator like Gota.
Sisili Bisili Tuesday, 31 July 2018 03:16 PM
They should have built the Parliament in the middle of Beira lake instead of Diyawannawa.
Broken heart bandit Tuesday, 31 July 2018 03:20 PM
Come on. Give Maithripala a break. He appeared from earth. Not from the water. So he cannot smell that beira lake. Hope he bought the newespaper.
Upul Tuesday, 31 July 2018 05:06 PM
What a shame to have a stinking area in the Colombo city. CMC should wake up and make sure this is cleaned up right away. It is an eye sore, as well as a major health hazard.

Like happening since Gotabaya start city upgrade, time to dump this on a surrounding village
