The famous Calido Beach at Kalutara North that gave pleasure to environmentalists and revered by young lovers is being devastated by the marauding waves of the Indian Ocean.
Many residents, who are angered by the severe erosion and damage caused to the beach which is the main source of livelihood for many in the area blame the present and past governments saying the catastrophe is a result of the port city being built by the Chinese. There hasn’t been any such devastation experienced in the area before.
Despite certain media attempting to put the blame on a depression in the Indian Ocean, residents who experience the disaster say the act is a good example of the callous and incompetent actions of the rulers.
Residents say if no scientific and brave measure is taken immediately, the road, adjacent homes and a vast area in Kalutara North would disappear from this Earth just like the rulers who have brought about the destruction with their greed for dollars.
