Sajith Builds Model Village To Honour Cricket Legend Kumar Sangakkara: Name Of Village Earns Ridicule On Social Media

Minister Sajith Premadasa has laid a foundation stone for a model village to honour former Sri Lankan cricketer Kumar Sangakkara. 

Although the gesture has been appreciated by many, the name of the model village has earned ridicule on social media. 

The name of the village — Sadaa Loka Poojitha Kumar Sangakkaragama - translates into English as 'the village for world-renowned Kumar Sangakkara.'

Sangakkara also attended the event to lay the foundation stone for the model village yesterday. 

The village — the 2126th model village constructed by the Housing Ministry — will be built in the Lunugamwehera area, in the Hambantota district, and will consist of 30 houses.
