    [He said disciplinary action would be taken against the culprits and it would include discontinuation of annual increments and transference to North and East and peripheral hospitals.]

    Yep, keep sending corrupted and rotten staff to NE and start re-building! Even after 30 yrs of war, no change in the mentality.

    And Abising believes there are some Sinhala leaders already born, to solve the Tamil issues.

    Poor Abi couldn`t name even a few!

    Ananth19,

    Nimal Siripala`s idea is to get the rotten corrupted lot to reform from LTTE. Let`s put in that way. May be he was having second thoughts after first round of talks in Geneva.

    I don`t want to generalize ( becuase it`s not fair to put everyone in the same boat) but most sri lankan doctors are one spoilt lot. We are perhaps one of the few countries in the world where a medical degree is given free of charge, but once they graduate many of these doctors enter the big `medcial buisness`.

    Everyone needs to earn their dough, but this is one profession where you can`t be blinded by greed. Like most other things in the country, it`s the wrong people for the wrong job-they would have been better off doing a IT or management degree and earning the big bucks-thatway, no one`s life is in jeorpady and they have not used our money to do that!

    Hi Shanika,

    A doctor supposed to be a Godly profession not chasing for money like vultures to the corpse that is why they are educated by the tax payers money and take an oath. It is absolutely sad to see some of this rotten apples bring disrepute to the good ones who do world of good.

    Dr. A,

    Exactly!

    This is what happens when immature ministers are given the opportunity to rebuild the nation.

    The FEELING with which one does the work is far more important than the physical level work itself. The findings in the hospitals would not be different to the findings in other essential services funded by the Public. The Minister failed to develop regular bottom up reporting and hence relies on `spy` work at the process level. This could result in losing outstanding service oriented workers who feel indepedent enough not to follow obsolete top-down administrative rules.

    The Minister failed to respond to the bottom up report that I sent him regarding the CFA. Service work happens / is done close to the point at which Top-Down Administration and Bottom-up Facilities meet. Some of these professionals would have been building bottom-up facilities which the Minister has unlawfully damaged.

    [Referring to the duty of doctors, the Minister said that in accordance with Health Ministry Circular, every doctor was required to maintain a diary given to them as a special privilege and added that it had been found that some doctors who had been reporting for duty were attending to personal matter to the neglect of their duty.]

    It is very interesting to note this is coming for a person like Nimal Siripala Archimedes.

    Once when his wife appeared at an unexpected time at his office he was with his secretary in an intimate position. Wife went aghast seeing this and start beating him with a broom. So our man started running all over the place in his birthday suit.

    After that incident, he was named as Archimedes.

    Corrupted politicians too should be transferred to North and East.

    Then Nimal Siripala can have a good time with his friends Bala and Adel.

    Naleen,

    We are progressing slowly but steadily in building a corrupt free nation and please don`t even try to corrupt us!
