COLOMBO (Daily Mirror) - By the end of this year, the work on the first phase of the solar power project for religious places of worship will be completed, Buddhasasana Religious and Cultural Affairs Minister Vidura Wickramanayake said.

The Minister said this following a discussion with Power and Energy Minister Kanchana Wijesekera at the Buddhasasana Religious and Cultural Affairs Ministry.

The project of installing solar power systems at religious places of worship will be implemented under the aid project received from the Indian Government to promote Buddhist relations between Sri Lanka and India.

"Under this project, relief should be provided to Buddhist temples and institutions operating as teaching centers of all religions. 

Considering the advantages of a ground-mounted solar panel system, the electricity generated by it should be given to the national grid for electricity consumption in religious places of worship," Minister Wijesekera said. 

The Minister further said that apart from the shrine of Sri Pada, a system will be prepared to provide electricity through solar panels to the streets and other places where people come to worship.

This Indian financial grant will cover around 2,000 religious places of worship, he said.

    Here is another man who used his cunning brain to deceive the masses to Project him as a politically clean person , but he was unmasked in right royal fashion when he raised his hand to approve the 20 amendment which he criticized before the voting took place in the parliament. Hope this will be his last tenure in politics.

    Just pretending as a show-off will never beat Rajapakasas in the elections to be held in 2024.
