    a ha the question is does he use his own or tax payers money. in directly he will because he like that ali baba before him probably take an entourage at the tax payuers expense. ravi puts a tax on onions to cover that ha ha.

    Do you really go treatment or to relax and enjoy Sir? Did you spend your own money or state money?

    PERERA Saturday, 14 November 2015 08:24 AM

    @saju why dont to make a trip to the main gates of any hospital and see how many sadly the low income group who go there for treatmeny. you will be surprised and perhaps refrain making such deficient comments about attendees of state hospitals

    SO WHAT IS WRONG WITH OUR HOSPITALS BOTH PUBLIC AND PRIVATE AND DOCTORS. WHY DO THESE POLITICIANS NEED TO RUN TO SINGAPORE FOR MEDICAL NEEDS. SHOULD THE PRIME MINISTER NOT LOOK INTO WHAT IS WRONG WITH MEDICAL SYSTEM AND TAKE NECESSARY ACTION TO MAKE IT BETTER FOR ALL SRI LANKANS INCLUDING THE ONES WHO FREQUENT THAT ISLAND IN JPURA.

    If he has no serious ailments, why the sudden trip ? Did he feel like a weekend break in Singapore at taxpayers expense ?

    Ranil took a private visit and who goes for Govt hospitals in SL?

    Mandy Friday, 13 November 2015 03:53 PM

    It is money - you can go too - but from Sajin to Duminda and everyone goes to Spore. Of course whether their service is better, is doubtful.
