Fact check and fat lies
Apropos the FACT CHECK in your daily with regard to the Health Minister claiming the standards of health services in Sri Lanka being superior compared to healthcare systems of other countries, it is indeed a waste of time to seek clarification on his comment, as the minister is notorious for his unfounded statements and utterings on political issues.
Minister knows about the psyche of the average citizens ...that they would never challenge a tall story
He is a stereotype Sri Lankan politician rather than a dedicated Minister of Health.
The Minister, who is a medico, knows too well, about the psyche of the average citizens of this country that they would never challenge a tall story, whenever it is told to the country.
To quote one of his self- invented tales, he said immediately after the Easter Sunday explosions in the country that they were carried out in retaliation of the massacre that took place in the New Zealand Mosque. That claim was rejected outright by the leaders of that country, who said that the attacks in Sri Lanka had been planned well in advance before that tragedy took place.
The Minister cares two hoots about the public or about his image and he could be seen in action as the elections too are in the offing.
