The GMOA executive committee today unanimously rejected the Government’s final decision on the SAITM issue, which was issued on October 29.

GMOA Secretary Haritha Aluthge said they would not agree to any compromise and would continue their battle until SAITM was nationalized.

He said the GMOA would back the fast unto death carried by the parents of the medical faculty students.

Meanwhile, in a letter to President Maithripala Sirisena, the GMOA said the Government should clarify its decision even though it was described as positive.

It requested the President to appoint a technical committee to carry out the proposals.

Earlier last week GMOA Assistant Secretary Naveen De Soyza told Daily Mirror they welcomed the decision to abolish SAITM but however the 'not for profit institution' needed further clarification. (Thilanka Kanakarathna)

    Oh what have we come to. The doctors now want the parents of the medical students to 'fast on to death'! I bet no other body or institution that represented doctors ever 'supported' death of people for a political cause.

    GMOA has no guts to fast unto death but they are promoting others to fast unto death. This is illegal its instigating another person to commit suicide and GMOA leadership should be taken into custody and produced before the courts. Over to you Minister of Law and Order and Minister of Justice.

    Why don't the GMOA office bearers also fast onto death.? It would be the day Sri Lanka would be celebrating like the day it celebrated our world cup win.

    Did you fellows ever think that we will be surprised by this utterance of yours !- All you jokers threaten with fast unto death - but so far all are cowards saying this or that without taking up this "noble" path to sure death.

    Go to hell.........start your stupid strike, who cares!

    This President and the government do not take a firm decision on anything including the SAITM issue. They dither back and forth, and try to please everyone without arriving at a reasonable solution. That is the very characteristic of this Government.

    Govt. ignorant of details to work out nationalization. Do what prez. Premadasa did and get help from one like Dr. Nalin de Silva --YouTube 2017 SAITM and Modern History of education

    people of srilanaks wake up and give them the vitamin they are asking
