    Why are these people wearing the white coats on the road? It is meant to protect self and the patient from infection transmission. A status symbol for the uneducated medical students

    SAITM must not be closed. New provision will have to introduced to stop Government universities doctors to go abroad before 20 years of State service,

    Some of these just have 2Credits and 1 simple pass at ALs. Others with A s and B s at Saitam.

    Colombo medics, building demolished, on the streets doing mad projects and in tents protesting. Frustrated with no teaching, they blame all else. SLMC deans vested interests with children abroad

    All those who participate for this cause, please note that a vast majority of the population do not support your cause. What the public opinion is that rectify any shortcomings of SAITM and give encouragement to produce more quality doctors. For any doubt in quality, why cannot the Act 69? be given to SAITM graduates like for foreign medical graduates

    Pure jealousy of someone else getting the same qualification. In most of the countries private universities are available.

    It is sad to see probable future medical professionals behave like ruffians and rowdies or even more sad that they are reflecting their true selves.The state sector medical students must understand that they are not the custodians of the medical education system of the nation.They are getting free education and most of them due to the provincial intake scheme.when the MR regime launched SAITM, where were theses heroic undergrads and the media? The government must not wilt under pressure from hooligans and must rid the nation of the medical mafia that holds the poor masses to ransom by strikes and demands for rights to enrichment via private practice and duty free car permits.A shameful society of shameless doctors N medical students

    Shear Jealousy towards Private Education.Those faces looks frustrated.They are making poor tax payers money mockery without attending lectures.

    If the government remove district quota , 60-75% of SAITM students who all came from Colombo and Gampaha gvt schools will enter gvt. medical colleges in merit basis.

    THIS IS AN UNREASONABLE DEMAND. THESE PEOPLE ARE SELFISH. SEE THEY ARE MARCHING IN THE CENTER OF THE ROAD THUS BLOCKING TRAFFIC

    This Government is elected by the people to follow their policies and not to bow down to GMOA Jealousy or JVP policy. University students won’t value the free education they get through public funds and that is why they are more on the road than in the University.

    How can these street weirdos close a legally established institute. Next they'll shout, expel MS and install MR. But they do not know how to do it because there is no road leading to that. Even the SLMC Deans were shouting to close SAITM to be popular with the insane and crazy GOMA. If wicked shouts can kill, we would all be dead. But that is not how this world functions and they don't know that. If they study and get jobs soon, may be they can earn and lead useful lives. Or be political puppets. The funniest twist to SAITM being rejected by SLMC is that the Judiciary verdict rejected the SLMC. 2017 Joke

    Where is that maduwalige I'll probably need it.

    NIM Monday, 23 January 2017 07:27 PM

    These crazies are weirdos. They don't want any body else to cure patients. The truth is that they too don't know how to, hence their insecurity
