While thanking President Maithripala Sirisena for his decision to enroll SAITM students to General Sir John Kotelawala Defence University (KDU), Student Action Committee of SAITM today requested the President to enroll all the students who are currently at SAITM to KDU without any discrimination.

In a letter to the President, the student body of SAITM said the details of the transfer were not clear.
“We would like to convey our heartfelt gratitude to you for providing us with a prompt solution.

However, the details of the transfer is not clear and therefore we would like to humbly request you to direct your attention with regard to our concerns when implementing this solution,” they said in the letter.

They said that they joined SAITM after being scrutinized by the specified authorities (UGC and Higher Education Ministry) with regards to their entry qualifications and requested the President to enroll all the students who are currently at SAITM to KDU without any discrimination.

“Since our intention was to study in Sri Lanka due to certain financial and social issues, we strongly oppose any attempts made by certain parties to undermine your Excellency’s decision and send a fraction of students abroad to continue their medical in foreign universities, “it said.

They said the necessary legislative changes should be implemented before their enrollment into KDU. (Thilanka Kanakarathna)

    yes if they were recruited under UGC approval all should be absorbed.

    Students who have minimum qualification to enter University in SL should absorb to KDU. Others should leave or better send them for general science degree. Money should not be the factor for medical education in country like SL.

    Prez, please make the stupid GMOA also to come under the KDU for the sake of learning some manners.

    Once admitted into SAITM under UGC and studying medical course, it is illegal injustice to try to make discrimination within the group. They have to be treated as one group and the same thing done to all.

    While students are struggling with their education and lives, Dr. Neville and his registrar are forcing children to pay fees. Abolish this Saitm and send Dr.Neville and his people to prison for financial fraud

    The money in SAITM belongs to students and not to Dr. Neville

    This action shows the inefficiency of this government. The university students lost one year in their degree programmes. Does not matter that but what about their lives. These politicians do not know the wealth of education and the life span of the people, specially the youths. Who pays the compensation for the students who lost complete one year their university lives. If the Presidents knows the pulse of general mass he could have taken this decision long before. This is one of the reason loose votes. The Politician must know, the people are worth than money and the swollen heads. Now the Government is scared on ballots. Good lesson to these old folks
