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.

    Good lesson..All over ugly metal structures remain.. The city is looked so ugly with empty hoardings standing on buildings and open areas. May be this man was sent up by some one to teach a lesson

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