Though Colombo is the former capital city, it is the busiest city in Sri Lanka. The city is mixed with many modern lives and majestic buildings. It has around 647 100 people living in a small place as it is the most developed area of the country. The main reason of the development is because of the best resources and facilities are located in this city. Moreover, the head offices, the industries, political offices and other organizations are also situated here. Therefore, the government has to send most of the money in maintaining this part of the country. As a result of this, the other parts of the country is not developed nor touched. This has made the people to leave their cities, villages behind and migrate to Colombo mostly for jobs, education, facilities and political reasons. So now we see the cause for the down fall of the country as one quarter of Sri Lanka is developed and the rest not even close to it.
Is the government doing the correct thing? Is this fair to the public? I don’t think so; we have to address this issue seriously otherwise, this will harm the future of the country badly. Though Colombo is the head and the appearance for Sri Lanka, the rest of the country is the body and without its function, Sri Lanka is paralyzed. Therefore, the government should provide sufficient electricity, transports facility, communication and technology service, job opportunities and education institutions which will make the private sector also spread all over Sri Lanka. By this, the country will solve many of their current problems which will make the people cheerful for now.
