SAITM: Toppling govt. is only option says Handunnetti

If the government is not ready to close down SAITM we are ready to close down the government with the people's power, Parliamentarian Sunil Handunnetti said today.

He said there were no multiple solutions to resolve the controversy and the only solution was to topple the government.

“If the Government does not accept the defeat tomorrow and close down the SAITM, the JVP will use its full force to send the government home,” he said addressing the anti-SAITM parade in Colombo today.

Mr. Handunnetti also stressed that Health Minister Rajitha Senaratne, Higher Education Minister Lakshman Kiriella and Social Empowerment Minister S. B. Dissanayake had been blacklisted and were removed unconditionally from the people's hearts.

He further said that it was true that people, pedestrians and patients were inconvenienced by trade union actions but the country's state of medical education, especially the education of the poor parents' children would be ruined if the struggle failed.

"We should not be concerned about temporary inconveniences caused during the trade union actions if we are truly concerned about free education in the country. This struggle is to safeguard the education right of even your unborn child," he said. (Thilanka Kankarathna)

    We think you have little more brains than some of the guys at Diyawanna. But how many votes did your party get at the last General Elections? Be sensible. Also by such actions you are losing whatever regards anyone having for your party as you are also jointly responsible for aligning yourselves with unions like selfish, megalomaniac GMOA.who are putting the lives of poor people in jeopardy. And also by supporting trivial demands of CEB unions, you are showing that you want power at any cost. Going back to 71 and 88?

    Yes, please topple the government and let MR or Gotabaya Rajapaksa take over. The matter will be resolved in few minutes. Nobody will utter a single word.

    Yes, topple the government because the GMOA doctors are going to lose private practise and power if SAITM doctors are allowed to practise in Sri Lanka.

    Yes, yes, but please leave the toppling job to the people of this country, not to the handful of your mates who tried to do it twice before.

    He thinks this govt. was formed by them. Person who was rejected by people at the elections and belongs to a party which got only 6% of votes in the whole country talks about toppling a govt. elected by 62% of voters

    Well and then you can bring the regime to power who created the SAITM in the first place. Because, people will never vote for the JVP.

    Bro, Free higher education is such a communist and socialist thing. Higher education costs money in all countries which follows market economy. All problems will be solved if they start charging for university education, and of course give scholarships for the deserving cases.

    Did the people vote this government into power for the sole purpose of closing down the SAITAM?

    No where in the world does the masses strike to close an educational institution ( this height of illiteracy and stupidity ). It would have been sensible if you have asked the relevant Ministries to supervise and implement standards to such institution. Why don't you want to close other educational institutions which are equally sub standard as per your criteria ? It seems he is working with foreign education agents to send students to Russia. Thereby Sri Lanka will lose foreign exchange and a crop of doctors who would otherwise serve the country.
