The Government Medical Officers' Association (GMOA) would resort to trade union action against the misconduct of Minister Dr. Rajitha Senaratne as the Health Minister, GMOA Secretary Dr. Haritha Aluthge said yesterday.

Addressing a news briefing, he said they had sent a letter to President Maithripala Sirisena in this regard and added further action would depend on his reply to the letter.

He said this would be deeply discussed at the executive committee meeting that is to be held today.

“Dr. Senaratne during his tenure as the Health Minister, has ruined the health sector of the country and has created chaos in it. This cannot be tolerated,” Dr. Aluthge said.

He has been continuously advocating in defending the fraudulent SAITM institution that aggravated the issues in the health sector.

“Even though more than 14,000 of doctors have requested the President that the health ministerial portfolio should not be given to Dr. Senaratne, he has been re-appointed despite our continuous protest,” Dr. Aluthge added.

Meanwhile, Dr. Aluthge said the undue intervention of Sujatha Senaratne, the wife of Dr. Senaratne had become a threatening issue in the health ministry.

“It has been reported that the tactics of Dr. Senaratne’s wife has caused perplexity in the ministry and added she had become so powerful that she gives orders to the ministry officials,” Dr. Aluthge said.

The GMOA hoped the President would heed to these mattes and take necessary steps accordingly. (Sheain Fernandopulle)

    Doctors, please sitck to your duties. There are lots of things to be corrected. Appointing ministers is the responcibility of the prime minister

    Rajitha Senarathne whatever his flaws maybe, is against the corrupt practices of the GMOA and their mafia mindset. He brought in cheaper un-patented medicine to provide free or almost free healthcare to our people. He educated our people on the cancer scam happening in Sri Lanka. The GMOA doctors get paid millions by big western pharma to promote and test their medicine and they dont like Rajitha being against it.

    You the beneficiaries of free education doing trade union activities please stick to unionism and not try to control the profession or the govt.

    I think its high time to dump this GMOA out of this medical practice. Rajitha make a move. We will back up you.

    Not all 14,000 doctors are of the same view as what the Ex co says.

    Kingsley Wijesinhe Thursday, 03 January 2019 07:08 PM

    It is the President's prerogative to appoint ministers, so you guys just do the job for which the public pays you.

    Mushi Thursday, 03 January 2019 07:12 PM

    GMOA works for the political agenda of MR. Many good things done by Rajitha like reducing prices of medicine etc. But this GMOA always take innocent patients hostage to trouble the govt.What an attitude.
