Bandula clarifies funding for cricket grounds

Co-Cabinet spokesman Information and Communications Technology, Higher Education, Technology and Innovations Minister Bandula Gunawardane yesterday said that he didn’t mislead anyone about the proposed cricket grounds in Homagama.  

The Minister was responding to a question by a journalist at the Cabinet media conference yesterday about a tweet by former MP Udaya Gammanpila apologising for making a false statement that the proposed ground would be financed by the ICC.  

Gammanpila in his tweet added that his statement was based on the information given by Minister Gunawardane. “Cabinet approval had been granted for the proposed ground in 2016 and former sports ministers Harin Fernando and Dayasiri Jayasekara are very well aware of that. The government will not fund this project and it will be handled by the Cricket Board,” the Minister said.
