Harsha tells CMC to remove offensive hoarding in Rajagiriya

Jan 18, 2018 7:48:19 AM - thesundayleader.lk

Deputy Minister of National Policies and Economic Affairs Dr Harsha de Silva says he had called for the removal of an offensive hoarding in Rajagiriya.

The hoarding, giving publicity to a popular gymnasium and fitness centre, has an image of a barrel and text next to it saying “This is no shape for a woman” giving the impression women should not look like a barrel.

“I asked the Colombo MC Commissioner to remove this unapproved offensive hoarding. I would not tolerate this in Kotte,” Dr Harsha de Silva tweeted.

The hoarding drew strong reactions from the public, particularly women. (Colombo Gazette)
