The Government Medical Officers Association (GMOA) today urged President Maithripala Sirisena in writing to remove Rajitha Senaratne from his office as the Health Minister and arrest him with immediate effect.

Addressing a press conference, GMOA Secretary Dr. Harith Aluthge said legal action should be taken against Minister Senaratne for his undue intervention to the probe being carried out against Dr. Siyabdeen Mohamed Safi who was alleged to have performed sterilisations on women.

“The GMOA has no faith in the ministerial committee appointed to probe against the Kurunegala doctor. We can’t expect an independent inquiry into the incident from the committee as far as it is under Minister Senaratne,” Dr. Aluthge said.

“Besides, we have received credible information that the Minister is attempting to directly intervene into the case and make influence on the director of the Kurunegala Hospital,” he added.

He said they had stressed on numerous occasions that Rajitha Senaratne was not eligible to the Health Minister post and had been acting arbitrarily.

Therefore, they urged the President to take over the ministry and to appoint a partial committee under his directives. (Sheain Fernandopulle)

    The G.M.O.A. can demand anything once they run for office in the next general election.

    Doctors many of whom just ruthless money grabbers should keep out of politics and stick to treating patients instead of being careless, indifferent and also arrogant.

    "...AND APPOINT A PARTIAL COMMITTEE..." ?

    He is actually against Muslims. Under Minister Rajitha Senaratne, the health ministry banned medical professionals from performing our Islamic female circumcision, which was a gross violation of our religious rights.

    The people want all the GMOA criminals who caused problems to the sick be arrested immediately. It is their leader Padeniya who is charged for contempt of court

    Asantha Friday, 31 May 2019 04:41 AM

    Anoj Friday, 31 May 2019 06:04 AM

    GMOA should be disbanded and its bigwigs arrested, for sucking our wealth and treating us like their slaves.

    malij Friday, 31 May 2019 06:48 AM

    GMOA is another dirty terrorist group like ISIS. Legal action should to be taken against them first for killing of innocent sick people of this country.

    Cobra Friday, 31 May 2019 06:58 AM

    GMOA's teeth should be removed first to put it out if its misery!!!

    Edie M. F. Friday, 31 May 2019 07:10 AM

    AS WE KNOW GMOA ITSELF RUN BY MURDERERS HOPEFULLY THE CITIZENS KNOW HOW MANY TIMES THE GMOA ORGANISED STRIKE AND NOT PROVIDING MEDICAL TREATMENT TO THE PUBLIC, MEDICATIONS, AFTER THE PUBLIC HAD TRAVELLED 5 TO 6 HOURS TO REACH THE HOSPITALS FOR THEIR SCHEDULED MEDICAL EXAMINATIONS, ETC....... WHY CAN'T THE GMOA ALSO CONDUCT THEIR OWN INVESTIGATION TO THE MATTER. FINALLY WE THE PUBLIC COULD KNOW WHICH GROUP SABOTAGE THE INVESTIGATIONS. GMOA ARE A GROUP OF MORONS

    cheers Friday, 31 May 2019 07:26 AM

    shame on the minister batting for culprits to stay in power

    TS Friday, 31 May 2019 07:27 AM

    They don't like Rajitha:- 1.0 He reduced the prices of essential medical drugs. (some essential drug prices are reduced by half) 2.0 He arranged to give lenses free for the cataract operations in Govt hospitals. Before poor patients had to buy the lens and the surgeon was getting a commission. 3.0 He introduced spot audits in hospitals to check whether consultants and other essential staff are away from duty doing private practice during working hours. So if a Minster cares about the patients GMOA wants him removed.
