The Pivithuru Hela Urumaya says the government acquired the Neville Fernando Hospital for personal reasons.

Addressing a media breifing held in Colombo today, Leader of the Pivithuru Hela Urumaya and United People’s Freedom Alliance Parliamentarian Udaya Gammanpila said he cannot condone the government’s decision to acquire the hospital.

MP Gammanpila said the government acquired the Neville Fernando Hospital due to personal reasons faced by its owner.

MP Gammanpila said the government has taken over the responsibility of solving the personal issues of Dr. Neville Fernando when issues of dire magnitude persist within the country.

The Parliamentarian requested the government to direct its attention to issues faced by the public and not issues on personal levels.
