The Medical Faculty Students’ Parents’ Association (MFSPA) today said the discussion they held with Secretary to the President Austin Fernando on SAITM was unsuccessful, even though President’s Media Division claimed in a statement that the discussion was positive.

MFSPA Media Spokesman Dr Nimal Karunasiri told the Daily Mirror that whatever they had hoped from this discussion was not achieved and added that only the name of the South Asian Institute of Technology and Medicine (SAITM) would be changed with this decision.

“This institute will continue even in the future. The SAITM should be completely abolished and it should not be continued as any other institute as well. An interim committee should be appointed with regard to this issue,” added.

He said that the MFSPA would resort to a fast unto death protest on Monday (6) as scheduled if the related authorities would not provide them with an actual solution to this issue by then.

However, President’s Media Division said in a statement that the MFSPA had appreciated the steps taken by President Maithripala Sirisena solve the SAITM issue and added that they had made positive remarks on the latest decision taken by the government on the issue. (Kalathma Jayawardhane)

    How about 'abolishing ' free education totally? Including your kids medical education for which we pay and not you!

    Why don't they give the contract to "Abolish" to Kim Jong un?

    " provide them with an actual solution to this issue by then." - we know the one and only solution you want - namely "NO PRIVATE (ie PAID FOR) MEDICAL EDUCATION IN SRI LANKA" - my dear sirs - please answer why ?

    They are asking for the Shylock's pound of flesh. If they want fast until death let them do it. Get the students to continue their education without wasting tax payers' money.

    They are prepared to accept foreign medical degrees but don't want a private medical school in Sri Lanka with required standards.Can they justify their stance?

    How can they when they and their Satanic parents don't know if they are coming or going?

    Jealousy is a terrible condition.

    People of this country did not elect the government to implement the ideologies and agendas of Peratugami Party or JVP or GMOA. The solution given by the government has been very fair and accepted even by most of the parties (some reluctantly) involved in this issue, except for the extremist parties and their supporters who had formed small pocket groups like MFSPA. No one can hold any elected government and the people of this country for ransom. People are sick of their antics and if they elect to die by fasting, let them do that or they can even go and hang themselves.

    "Medical Faculty students' parents stand defiant" For what? To see another student in the country who has sacrificed so much to become a doctor thrown out on to the streets?

    One expects the parents to guide the children in the right path but here it is the other way about. I mean in the same boat.
