    5 Mil is not enough.

    Good move but it will not stop the brain drain. Peace is essential to stop the flow of professionals who are leaving the country at a rate since this govt came in to power.

    Oops! What`s happening here?

    Excellent move indeed. I only wish the government did something to recover the stolen VAT money as well.

    Yes if any one has broken the agreement he or she sholud pay that money back.

    But I did not agree the brainless minister`s statement `From grade 1 upto MBBS medical degree government spend around 5 million for each doctor`.

    Sri Lanka is a country which provide free education for the children.So from powerest child to president`s child get that benifit as a Sri Lankan child.

    Doctors and other professionals who has completed the university education has efficiently utilize that benifit.So any body cant blame or tell we have spend so much of money for that.On the other hand those who did not completed their education has wasted millions and millons national resoures.

    Anyway Thakkadi ministers wasting millions and millions per night.A person who ran around the ministry with out clothes in past can tell any thing without any shame.

    [had to sign Rs.5 million worth bond in accordance with the Health Ministry Act, but now the government had reduced it to Rs.200,000.]

    Which Govt??

    [No government had taken action to remedy this situation ]

    Which Govt? how many years your party is in power?? Who are you? Health Minister - were you sleeping all these years!!

    [The government would have no alternative but to take stern action to recover Rs.5 million from each doctor living abroad.


    if they dont pay what are you going to do? Why you are asking for 5M when you say Govt reduced to 200K

    so confusing? What is he talking??

    May be Govt wants money!

    This minister guy is like `Hanuma`, they even don`t have enough working places for average doctors.

    I would say this is another one of his public stunts.

    [250 to 300 Sri Lankan doctors who had gone abroad to follow post-graduate studies and had not returned to the island within two years of completing their studies and examinations,]

    Desperate Times..!

    I thought only yesterday we were talking about Tamils/Sinhalese leaving the country and the real reasons behind this

    why would a Doctor not return to the Country after completing his or her course..what are the reasons?

    Let us start this all over again!!
