MPs request to increase the current medical insurance of 02 lakh rupees to 1 million rupees!

A request has been submitted to increase the current medical insurance of 02 lakh rupees to 1 million rupees. It is revealed that this proposal has been presented to the Home Affairs Committee of the recently convened Parliament.

The government spends an initial amount of 80,000 rupees for the current insurance of 02 lakhs and if it is decided to increase the insurance value up to one million, the government has to spend an additional amount of nearly 130,000 rupees for each MP.

At present, the health service in this country has gone into a serious crisis due to the fact that even essential medicines cannot be provided for the patients. There is a severe shortage even of medicines required for cancer patients, heart patients and kidney patients who are in a battle between life and death.

It is a serious problem that people’s representatives propose to increase only their facilities at a time when the majority of the common people of the country are facing life risks without medicines.

It is also reported that Speaker Mahinda Yapa Abeywardena has decided to delay the consideration of this proposal for a few months due to the current economic situation in the country.
