Nov 08, Colombo: Sri Lanka's main opposition United National Party (UNP) Gampaha District parliamentarian Dr. Jayalath Jayawardena has been admitted to the hospital, following a heart attack.

The 58-year-old parliamentarian, who himself is a doctor by profession, is currently being treated at the cardiac section of the Intensive Care Unit at the Sri Jayewardenepura Hospital.

A hospital source has told local media that MP's condition is stable and is being closely monitored.
