The health condition of Minister Wimal Weerawansa is reported to be gradually improving.
The fast unto death staged by the Minister against the panel appointed by the UN Secretary General on Sri Lanka ended last evening with the intervention of the President. Minister Weerawansa is now undergoing treatment at the Army hospital in Colombo. He is reported to be undergoing all necessary tests and medical treatment. Meanwhile, the National Freedom Front has said that the President has pledged not to betray Sri Lanka. The national convener of the NFF Janantha Samaraweera has said that Minister Wimal Weerawansa has abandoned the fast on this pledge.
