Legal action against mosquito breeders
Due to the existing uncleanliness of Sainthamaruthu town in Kalmunai
Municipal Council area, the density of mosquitoes has increased.
The side drains of the town are filled with debris, discarded from
the hotels and houses and the water flow is not functioning.
The polluted water is stagnated along the drains and these places
have become mosquito breeding grounds. As a result residents of the
Sainthamaruthu town face a health hazard and the people turning up for
their consumer and other requirements are greatly inconvenienced due to
the unbearable bad smell emanating from the uncleared drains of the
Sainthamaruthu town. The affected residents and shop owners of the
Sainthamaruthu town appeal to the Municipal Council Kalmunai to take
steps to remedy the situation by cleaning the refuse clogging the
drainage system of the town.
The Sainthamaruthu Divisional Secretariat in Ampara district has
requested the House and Hotel owners in Sainthamaruthu to eliminate
mosquito breeding places in their area. Divisional secretary
Sainthamaruthu A.L.M. Sakleem and Health officers suddenly inspected the
surroundings of some hotels and found that they are ideal spots for
mosquito breeding.A.L.M. Saleem advised some hotel owners to eliminate
the mosquito breeding places within a fortnight failing which legal
action would be taken against them.
