Erecting tallest Christmas Tree, suspended

The erection of world's tallest Christmas Tree at the Galle Face Green, has been temporarily suspended, says Deputy Minister of Ports & Shipping - Nishantha Muthuhettigama.

Speaking yesterday (06), Colombo Archbishop, Malcolm Cardinal Ranjith said that the construction of a Christmas tree on Galle face is a sheer waste of money, and those responsible for this work should be asked to use the funds to construct houses for poor people or provide scholarships to poor children.
