  1. You do not need any japanese to say about gas emissions in garbage piles. It can be methane, carbon dioxide and ammonia, hydrogen sulphide etc. Only problem is corrupted politicians cheating public to gain power and stay in power. What did we get for two years of new government after promising all good things… Sri Lanka has gone back to 50 years on development.
