P’naruwa street lamps never switched off (pics) Featured

Our area correspondent captured these images of how several of the street lamps on Colombo-Batticaloa main road in front of the Polonnaruwa sacred area remain lit during daytime.

It is unfortunate that both ruling and opposition politicians frequent this road, but they seem not to have noticed this wastage of electricity and public money.

Area residents fear switching the street lamps off themselves as the switches are unsafe.

The CEB has been informed, but to no avail.
