The GMOA said it would complain to the Bribery Commission (BC) tomorrow over the alleged financial misappropriation which had taken place when the government took over the Neville Fernando Teaching Hospital (NFTH).
GMOA Secretary Dr. Haritha Aluthge said the government would be spending Rs.3, 000 million annually to maintain the hospital which is greater the than the annual income receiving by the Hambantota Port Deal.
“This amount is even higher than the value of the Hambantota Port Deal which is only Rs.1, 800 million. Health Minister Rajitha Senaratne had caused a huge loss to the country by agreeing to take over NFTH,” he said. (Thilanka Kanakarathna)

All this mess because of one minister. Rajitha Senaratne! I do not know why the Prezi and PM have given him such a power! Is Rajitha an equalant to Basil R of previous regime?

If any illegal deal has taken place, please take appropriate legal action without taking poor people to ransom.

First government should investigate the tax files of the doctors. The amount they playout would exceed several billions. In most of doctors income tax records, number patients consult per day is less than 10. Since they claimed very low number of patients in income tax files ( most probably 10 % of actual), to cover up income tax, the government taxes they claimed from innocent patients also shared among channeling center owners and doctors without paying to government. I challenged GMOA to ask government to investigate on this also

That burden would not be fallen on SL Tax payer's shoulders if you did not strike for your selfish privileges.

What an idiotic statement. So if the government build a new hospital with public funds and maintains it with public funds, is it misappropriation? For every government hospital, they have to spend this much of public funds to maintain. At least in the NFTH, the government did not spend for building the hospital, but now only to maintain like any other public hospital. So what a blessing. These selfish doctors have become blind with hatred. So they do not see the reality.

Why can't the public go to courts against them for depriving them of health care (a basic human right) when they strike?
