The Road Development Authority (RDA) has suspended the decision to remove street foods vendors near the walking path towards Parliament in Kimbulawala.
However, RDA Director General L.V.S. Weerakoon said a final decision has not been taken in this regard.
About 33 food stalls have been set up over an area of 7,000 square feet, generating an income to more than 150 families.
However, the shop owners told ‘Sri Lanka Mirror’ that the RDA had previously informed them in writing to vacate their shops within three days by the 24th.
It was ‘Sri Lanka Mirror’ that first revealed the move by the RDA to remove these shops.
