Megapolis and Western Development Minister Patali Champika Ranawaka inspects the landfill site.

A progress review meeting on the project to create a landfill site in Aruwakkalu, Puttalam, was held yesterday under the patronage of Megapolis and Western Development Minister Patali Champika Ranawaka at Wanathawilluwa Divisional Secretariat.

An advisory board headed by the Wanathawilluwa Divisional Secretary was appointed to monitor the progress of the project. The advisory committee includes professionals and community leaders of the area.

A group of people forcibly entered the construction site recently claiming that a drainage canal has been build to drain the liquid waste of the project.

Refuting this allegation, the Minister said that only the basic construction of the site has begun and this canal has been built temporally to drain rainwater.

During the meeting, Minister Ranawaka directed relevant authorities to take legal action against those who had damaged public property.

The Minister also inspected the site.
