Apr 29, Colombo: The main opposition party of Sri Lanka, United National Party (UNP) today protested a new tax proposed by Colombo Municipal Council which is governed by the party itself.

The Mayor of the UNP controlled Colombo Municipal Council A.J.M. Muzammil has proposed a sewerage tax. He says that the tax will be introduced to modernize the sewerage system of the capital city. Asian Development Bank has granted a loan to the Colombo Municipal Council for this purpose.

However, addressing a UNP press conference, Gampaha district MP Joseph Michael Perera said that the tax is unfair and the people might have to pay a tax for toileting as well.

The MP said he could not endorse the tax introduced by the Colombo Municipal Council.
