Wariyapola PS didn't know province’s late Governor
The Wariyapola Pradeshiya Sabha had displayed banners expressing its grief over the passing of northwestern province governor Raja Collure – only that the picture in them was not that of him.
The banners carried a picture instead of A.J.M. Muzammil, former NWP governor, who is presently the governor of Uva province.
According to our correspondent, the Wariyapola PS had carried this same erroneous banner at several locations.
After being informed by the public, the PS removed the banners.
Collure died today, aged 83, while receiving treatment at hospital for COVID-19.
