Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa underwent a minor spinal surgery at the Nawaloka Hospital on Monday and is recovering well from the procedure, health sources told Daily Mirror today.

According to sources, the Prime Minister and some other senior politicians have been consulting the orthopaedic surgeon and during his current visit to Sri Lanka, he had performed the surgery at the Nawaloka Hospital.

Sources said that the Prime Minister was recovering well from the procedure and will assume his official duties again soon. (Dharshana Sanjeewa Balasuriya)

    MR's name will be in history books for winning the war. His name will also go to history books as the man who ran the most corrupt political family is history. Cant blame Gota alone for the corrupt political culture. He has to function within the corrupt system his brothers and the UNP masterminded,
