Though most people in Kandy are keen to build a house legally, having obtained the necessary approval for their plans, due to discrepancies and the shortcomings of some officials there, their hopes have been dashed, Member of the Kandy Municipal Council M. Siraj Hassan alleged.
He stated that the policy of treating those with wealth with one spoon and doing the opposite to those not so affluent, should be stopped forthwith by the Kandy MC.
Hassan had made these comments during the monthly sessions of the Kandy MC held recently. He further added that presently there was no responsible or efficient Mayor or Commissioner at the Kandy MC to serve the public efficiently.
