Higher Education Minister Bandula Gunawardana said yesterday that he is still hopeful of building the Homagama International Cricket Stadium.
Mr. Gunawardana told Daily Mirror that he was eager to have such a playground in his electorate of Homagama. He said he intended to raise financial donations from well wishers to proceed with the project.
“When I was the Education Minister, I managed to get buses from Japan as donations to be given to the schools. I also got green boards as donations from South Korea to be used at schools instead of traditional blackboards,” he said.
Likewise , he said he would seek similar assistance from his well wishers to move ahead with the present project in Homagama if there was no approval to raise loans.
