The metal structure which was used by a man to climb up and stage a protest yesterday was removed late last night after it stood there since the Presidential Elections in January.

The structure had a massive cut-out of President Mahinda Rajapaksa during the polls. The authorities are seen here removing the structure. Pic by Waruna Wanniarachi

    Tenzing, when asked why he climbed the Everest, answered : "Because it is there". Thats why the Police must have removed it! They might as well keep the structure safely to be put up again for the local govenment elections.

    A good move. Next step would be to remove all the Telecom Towers...
