Jeyaraj Fernandopulle Indoor Stadium vested in the public

Jan 30, 2011 8:17:24 AM - itnnews.lk

The newly constructed Jeyaraj Fernandopulle Memorial Indoor Stadium has been vested in the public.

The foundation stone for the Kadolkele Indoor Stadium in Negomba was laid in 2007 on a concept of former Minister Jeyaraj Fernandopulle. However, the work on the project came to a standstill with his assassination by the terrorists. Thereafter the work was resumed with the mediation of Parliamentarians of the Gampaha District on the instructions of the President. The cost incurred was 50 million rupees. The Sri Lanka Army and the Air Force volleyball teams joined in the maiden match to be hosted there. Minister Dilan Perera, Parliamentarian Sudarshani Fernandopulle and Provincial Minister Nimal Lansa were among those present at the inauguration of the Stadium.
