United National Party leader Ranil Wickramasinghe has been able to obtain financial help from President  Mahinda Rajapaksa to pay the medical bills for Dr.Jayalath Jayawardena who suddenly took ill at a London air port.

The former Minister and senior opposition parliamentarian was found unconscious while travelling there and later admitted to East Surrey Hospital in London, where he was recommended to have an open heart surgery.

He had sent all documents regarding the expenses to the UNP General Secretary Tissa Attanayaka.  President Rajapaksa agreed to take care of the matter by the President’s Fund,

The Sunday Times in Colombo said Attanayaka conveyed the message to Dr. Jayalath Jayawardena about the President’s decision.

    Next to cross the line is the traitor JJ. Wait till he returns to accept the ministerial portfolio of minister without a heart and the messenger to POPE. To hell with th tax man. Pay him a recovery allowance, Benz car fitted with a heart surgery unit and send him to Tamil Nadoo as the consulate.

    Bloody corruption!

    President’s fund was collected from the PEOPLE not from the President’s personal property. He has no f* right to waste it on the LTTE.

    The President has an obsession with DIRTY politicians. Kudu Duminda, Mara Mervyn, Koti Jeyalath, Koti Minnal Ranga, Koti Gonason and soon Para Sambandan! Why not Para Karunanidi and Para Jeyalalitha too! And Sushma!

    While Fonseka is still in prison.

    Mr. Walter Jayawardana, few weeks ago you repoted that Dr. jayalath was out of hospital! Please check your news before posting. This man is good as dead. At least the tax payer should know how much was spent on his hospital stay. Remember Walter many moons ago PRAMADASA converted a second floor hotel in LA to a private hospital for him?

    Some one was going to file a case against Dr, Jayalath for High Treason? (Giving KPs where abouts to Karunanidhi, which is a Treasonable act) According to the e-mails floating about, he was not unconscious, but tired. He went to UK for a medical check up and to meet his son who is wanted by SL police.

    I know most of this is gossip.
    I only quoted Colombo’s Island newspaper which I had found reliable.What you wrote was matters some one told you and completely unchecked.I thank Appuhamy for his space. For your information when Jayalath was in power I never hesitated to criticize him and he never hated me for that. I wish him a speedy recovery
