The health condition of Minister Wimal Weerawansa has improved and the necessary medical attention is being provided to him, Director General of the Media Centre for National Security (MCNS) Lakshman Hullugalle told Daily Mirror online.

 

Hullugalle added that directions have been received from President Mahinda Rajapaksa and Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa regarding the welfare of the Minister and that the he is been looked after well.    

 

Minister Wimal Weerawansa ended his three day fast Saturday night after President Mahinda Rajapaksa visited him and offered a glass of water outside the UN office. He was then driven away in an ambulance to the army hospital.

 

Weerawansa had earlier stated that he would not give up the fast until the UN Chief gave an assurance that the three member panel appointed regarding Sri Lanka was dissolved.

 

Meanwhile, Minister Wimal Weerawansa's 79 year old mother had passed away at the National Hospital in Colombo last night. (Daily Mirror online)

    If anybody believed this fast unto death was genuine, they are living in another planet.

    anee bolan Sunday, 11 July 2010 10:50 AM

    roshan raz Monday, 12 July 2010 05:54 AM

    The Under taker Sunday, 11 July 2010 11:25 AM

    Anbu Sunday, 11 July 2010 11:30 AM

    But WW is better than KN, WW fasted for 3 days and KN just for some hourse with AC facility ..........So WW won the battle

    Perumal Sunday, 11 July 2010 11:53 AM

    now there are people going hungry every day as a result of lack of food. who looks into thier welfare?

    Brian Vittachi Monday, 12 July 2010 06:15 AM

    Only two days and he became so weak? What a wimp. Attention seeker. Must be feeling guilty cos he knows he boo-booed big time

    Wasantha Sunday, 11 July 2010 11:57 AM

    He should have been admitted to the General Hospital. The move is suspicious. Seems something wanted to be concealed.

    Bakamoona Monday, 12 July 2010 11:55 AM

    Hell of a joke ! haaaaa hooooooo

    Hash Sunday, 11 July 2010 12:03 PM

    While this drama was going on, did anyone notice the aspects of the Budget ? It was totally masked by this drama and the people were hoodwinked by this.

    Lakmal Monday, 12 July 2010 06:36 AM

    OUR HEALTH IS SO BAD, AFTER LAUGHING CONTINUOUSLY 3 DAYS.

    siva Sunday, 11 July 2010 01:00 PM

    he was asked to by the producers

    malkanthi Sunday, 11 July 2010 01:10 PM

    praveen its not about death, but hypocrasy!!!

    Shanil Samarakoon Sunday, 11 July 2010 02:05 PM

    Talk about neglecting his duties and bringing undue attention to himself. Selfishness on all levels ...for nothing. No follow through.

    Jehan Sunday, 11 July 2010 02:09 PM

    'Wimal’s health improves'

    At what point did it deteriorate?

    citizen1 Sunday, 11 July 2010 02:10 PM

    She must have been totally stressed out with her son making a public spectacle of himself. Poor lady!

    nipuna Sunday, 11 July 2010 02:40 PM

    Its poor people's money that is being spent on him for nothing.
    Who wants this guy to fast unto death? it is not common people but the hierarchy in this country. Why cant they cant they send him to a private hospital and spent their own money for him

    Concerned Monday, 12 July 2010 08:06 AM

    Why, was there a lemon puff box under his fasting stage?

    Jehan Sunday, 11 July 2010 07:33 AM

    Drama queen lives yet another day!

    citizen1 Sunday, 11 July 2010 07:33 AM

    This is truly nonstop entertanment!! I guess the show must go on!

    arasoysa Sunday, 11 July 2010 10:37 PM

    Definitely he needs to improve his health to enjoy the wealth he has created........!!!!

    Riz Sunday, 11 July 2010 07:48 AM

    No difference between him & Karunanidhi

    pandula Sunday, 11 July 2010 07:52 AM

    Has it deteriorated? Is he a member of the Army? Biggest joke after April 2010.

    sp Sunday, 11 July 2010 07:59 AM

    at tax payers cost? what a joke

    jim dougal Sunday, 11 July 2010 08:01 AM

    You would think that the hospitals of Sri Lanka have more than enough work to do and less than enough resources in dealing with the genuinely sick. Now this guy is wasting doctors time and the health services resources on an infantile publicity stunt, he must be so very desparate for attention, shame.

    bernard Sunday, 11 July 2010 08:01 AM

    His life was hanging by a thread and thank God, His Majesty came at the nick of time and saved his life. Everybody lived happily ever after. End of drama until they come up with a new one.

    Elaris Monday, 12 July 2010 12:40 AM

    Fastest fast of the century.

    RajasH Sunday, 11 July 2010 08:03 AM

    will any one take him seriously in the future ....does any one take him seriously..

    Hash Sunday, 11 July 2010 08:11 AM

    Now that his mother died last night, he will claim that he fasted on behalf of her and she died because of Ban Ki moon !!!

    Boa Sunday, 11 July 2010 08:12 AM

    There was nothing to improve he was on lemon puff anyways ...LOL.... poor acting and a predictable end.

    SherrifOfNottingHill Monday, 12 July 2010 09:38 AM

    It was supposed to be a fast to the death. Yet another example of a politician not keeping to his promise!

    ram Sunday, 11 July 2010 08:19 AM

    What happened to him health wise, his face had not faded, he appeared on stage as weak to talk or even lift up his head to talk, but with a trimmed beared and neatly combed hair with jel etc.
    If you don't eat and drink liquid for 24 hours imagine the body change physically. It is totally a drama.

    praveen Sunday, 11 July 2010 08:19 AM

    It 's disgusting to see how some people wishes another ones death..

    deyyiya Sunday, 11 July 2010 08:47 AM

    Why is this guy still in the news...shouldn't he be in the entertainment section?

    Saman Sunday, 11 July 2010 08:50 AM

    Think what u too did....? its better ... The main question is why he did this drama???

    solomon Monday, 12 July 2010 07:12 PM

    Fast is over! Now he needs 'fast food' for a fast recovery!

    MEW Monday, 12 July 2010 03:39 AM

    Yet again he and the government fool the stupid people of this country. Now Sri Lanka named as "Rice eating jokers"

    sayitlikeitis Monday, 12 July 2010 07:23 PM

    It must have been pre-planned for MR to bring him water on the 3rd day! What a sad state of affairs!

    JayPee Monday, 12 July 2010 04:00 AM

    Hey Guys, I am on a fast unto death until lunch time... anyone wishes to join me?

    gonsal Sunday, 11 July 2010 09:14 AM

    drama ended abruptly before the intermission...what a banana republic , we happened to live in

    Dr Ransi Gunawardena Monday, 12 July 2010 04:04 AM

    What an anti climax...

    Roshan Monday, 12 July 2010 04:05 AM

    Majority of the public are fasting everyday due to the high cost of living.
