Government medical faculty students will attend lectures from November 20 after the issue of the South Asian Institute of Technology and Medicine (SAITM) was solved satisfactorily, Convener of the Medical Faculty Student’s Action Committee (MFSAC) Ryan Jayalath said.
He said that the anti-SAITM protests carried out by Inter University Students' Federation, the MFSAC, parents and several other groups came to end on November 8, after a discussion held with Deputy Minister Dr.Harsha de Silva.

Pity our future medical care. Hope they would at least be able to read test reports. Hope the future of medicine will change and there would be no requirement for so called 'doctors '

This is utter nonsense... if they cant come for classes then just expel them from the program and give someone who deserve free education.

There is no value in free stuff. Free education is not actually free public pays for it. Remove all the rewards doctors get and we will be able to see how many actually wants to serve the public who payed for their studies. Why not give these guys small jobs and request them to pay atleast 25% of their fee? then they will know the value of education.

Luckily I am into my eighties and unlikely I will be there to be treated by these ruffians who pass out as doctors in a few years and specialise. But through free education they get a degree and fleece the public a Channel Consultants.

They fought for their rights as students with better "cognitive abilities". Don't be jealous. Think as human beings, one day we all have to leave this world - empty handed.

Just because they got higher marks in a paper based examination does not mean they have better 'cognitive abilities'. As doctors, they need to have ethics, integrity, values and compassion, words which these thugs have probably never heard of.
