Minister promises immediate solutions

Provincial Councils and Local Government Minister Faizar Musthapha yesterday, pointed out that he or his ministry is not responsible for naming an area of four Grama Niladhari divisions in the Mahara Pradeshiya Sabha as Akbar Town.

He was responding to a letter submitted by a community organisation to protect heritage of Enderamulla demanding an immediate solution to the said matter.

The letter was submitted to Minister Musthapha by the said community organisation yesterday.

Following the letter, Minister Musthapha immediately contacted the Chairman of the Election Commission Mahinda Deshapriya and inquired from him whether it is possible to name this electorate as ‘Enderamulla 2’.

Minister Musthapha then informed the community representatives that the name will be amended as soon as the relevant committee approved the proposed name change.

Minister Musthapha pointed out that the name was suggested by the Appeal Review Committee headed by Ashoka Peiris, along with the recommendation of the Divisional Secretary of the area.
