The President had also berated Heath Minister Dr. Rajitha Senaratne about the misguided statements that he made about Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka getting a military appointment to which the Minister had said that there were no personal differences but, only political differences with Labour Minister John Seneviratne.
Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe intervened and said that he had spoken earlier to Health Minister Dr. Rajitha Senaratne and there was nothing more to that after that.
