The joint opposition today announced that they would support the Government Medical Officers’ Association’s (GMOA) decision to engage in a country-wide strike on Friday against the controversial SAITM issue.

Joint opposition Leader MP Dinesh Gunawardena speaking at a media briefing said the government had continuously postponed its decision on the South Asian Institute of Technology and Medicine (SAITM) despite being held responsible to provide a solution. (Kalathma Jayawardhane)

    Amazing, no one has so far questioned the legality of JO in a Democratic Parliament alongside an elected and legitimate Opposition?!

    Loosers all the way !!

    Appu Thursday, 06 April 2017 11:15 AM

    JO is another failed institute. Only brainless and ruthless will support this type of barbaric acts regardless of the course. There should be more humane way to address issues and taking revenge from poor people via DM Android App

    Never expected such action by a gentleman of the stature of Dinesh Gunawardene.

    mahinda Wednesday, 05 April 2017 06:26 PM

    Cat out of the bag. Now everyone knows who is behind this unjustifiable saga and who induce pain on the general public

    Amanda Wednesday, 05 April 2017 06:26 PM

    Disgraceful lot in parliament who supports an illegal strike by GMOA to kill innocent patients. via DM Android App

    Jay Jay Wednesday, 05 April 2017 06:33 PM

    Dinesh is the worst political parasite in Sri Lanka. This time around, he is riding on GMOA but sucks the blood of poor citizens.

    Maniya Wednesday, 05 April 2017 06:34 PM

    Are you saying you never supported GOMA in the beginning???

    BV Wednesday, 05 April 2017 06:44 PM

    Now it's cristel clear who is behind it.

    Bala Wednesday, 05 April 2017 07:05 PM

    What gentleman - do not denigrate real gentlemen.

    WISE DONKEY Wednesday, 05 April 2017 07:11 PM

    Even if this strike were to kill 100 innocent poor patients they don't care as long as they can topple the government.Let the patients go top hell for JO. SHAME ON THOSE IN THIS NOBLE PROFESSION AND THE DIRTY POLITICIANS..

    TONY Wednesday, 05 April 2017 07:16 PM

    JO ALWAYS WILL SUPPORT AND DO ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING ILLEGAL

    TONY Wednesday, 05 April 2017 07:19 PM

    IS THE JO SUPPORTING GMOA OR THE GMOA IS SIMPLY CARRYING OUT JO ORDERS

    Dee Wednesday, 05 April 2017 07:30 PM

    Lions have now become dogs.

    Kadiya Wednesday, 05 April 2017 07:58 PM

    Naturally; they hold the remote, don't they? Another thing, why didn't they oppose it when MR started the show?

    Kadiya Wednesday, 05 April 2017 07:59 PM

    He's got his father turning in his grave!

    Kadiya Wednesday, 05 April 2017 08:01 PM

    I second it!

    Pf Wednesday, 05 April 2017 08:04 PM

    We should understand the real issue here.It is the SAITM.The present regime failed to take action so far.No point blaming JO or GMOA.Previous regime present regime are equally responsible for this SAITM issue.Route cause is SAITM. via DM Android App

    Manel Thursday, 06 April 2017 12:30 AM

    These JO bufoons have no sympathy or empathy towards poor patients and now they want to support the doctors' strike. Patients should keep this in mind.

    naomal Thursday, 06 April 2017 01:10 AM

    Dinesh just allow people to respect you, don't allow people to think that your a big ugly joker, ask MR to come front will you, all those GMOA buggers must have got billions from MR, for sure, including you.

    ase Thursday, 06 April 2017 04:45 PM

    This would not have happen if , as he said, Mr. Sirisena stayed as independent president and handed over SLFP to a proper person to lead.

    Mahila Thursday, 06 April 2017 03:55 AM

    GOMA is the Cat's Paw. Everything is out of the bag.

    john Thursday, 06 April 2017 04:56 AM

    To develop the country, the Parliament should do away with JO. Where in the world do you find JO in legislature, this is a very serious joke encouraging a destructive group with ultra motives within Parliament.

    AliG Thursday, 06 April 2017 05:16 AM

    Get a life. Root cause is not SAITM. The root cause is the greedy GMOA parasites who are scared of losing their privileges like private practice and car permits. JO are behind this as well for their own selfish reasons. They were behind SAITM when their lord and master started it. Now they oppose it. Shameful situation.
