The Sri Jayawardenepura Parliament complex received it’s official land deed after 36 years from the Ministry of Land and Parliamentary Reforms yesterday. The deed for the land bearing the Parliament in Diyawanna Oya was handed over to Speaker Karu Jayasuriya by Land and Parliamentary Reforms Minister Gayantha Karunathilaka. The Parliament since its establishment on April 29, 1982 only possessed a Thamba Sannasa (a royal edict written on a copper plate) until now.
