An aerial view of the Upper Kotmale Hydropower Plant, which was commissioned by President Mahinda Rajapaksa and Japanese Ambassador Nobuhito Hobo this morning. Power and Energy Minister Champika Ranawaka and several government ministers and officials were also present. Pix-President’s Media
Part of this water ( Kothmale and Mahaweli) should be diverted to IranaiMadu Tank and beyond via the NCP Canal. That is the only reasonable agenda SL govt should implement!!

Do Sri Lankans still have soldiers with spears? I saw a whole line of those people scantily dressed all along the dam? Do they kill with those spears? Who was that person in those luminous drooping dress who was sang for president and went in front of him? Is that the speaker of parliament? Are those his dress robes? Looking from the aerial view it seems they have destroyed a lot of forest on the top of the mountains. They could have done it more environment friendly way without destroying so much old trees. What happened to the wood of those trees? Were they publicly auctioned?
