The Annual Convention of the of the Public Services United Nurses Association headed by Ven. Muruththettuwe Ananda Thera was held at Sugathadasa Stadium today (16th). President Maithripala Sirisena participated as the chief guest.
Ven. Muruththetuwe Ananda Thera is a priest who worked tirelessly to bring Mahinda faction to power and was an ardent supporter of the faction until a few days ago. Wht was strange was that Mr. Mahinda Rajapaksa had not been invited for the convention this year.
However, the Minister of Health Rajitha Senartna said the retired President phones him whenever he has any work to do and invited Ven. Ananda Thera to join him to help Mr. Rajapaksa.
Mr. A.H.M. Fouzy and John Seneviratne were among guest who had been invited.
