The SAITM Medical Faculty Parents Forum’s Convener Gemunu Wijeratne today urged the committee to investigate SAITM matter headed by Deputy Minister Dr. Harsha De Silva not to use their children as guinea pigs.

In a joint press briefing held with the Medical Faculty Students' Parents Association (MFSPA) Mr. Wijeratne charged that the committee is allegedly attempting to mislead them by converting the institute to a different entity without abolishing it.

He accused that the deputy minister is experimenting to legalize the private medical institutes using the SAITM students without resolving the matter therefore they don’t have faith on the committee.

He also said SAITM was established without any legal framework and it would take ages to legalize private medical institutes even as a different entity.  Therefore he  urged the government to enroll the SAITM students to the state medical faculties immediately.

“ We cannot wait for some more years. We request the authorities to appoint an independent professional committee comprising  deans of the medical faculties to resolve this issue.” he said.

When contacted Chairman of the committee Dr. Harsha de Silva said that Dr. Tennakoon has been appointed on behalf of the SAITM Parents Association therefore he cannot comment on Mr. Wijeratne’s statement.

“I’m totally independent on this matter. I cannot talk to each parent of the SAITM. If Mr. Wijeratne want to take part in the committee let him do so,” deputy minister said. (Thilanka Kanakarathna)

    What are this man's qualification to talk on education. How can students with low AL results be admitted to state universities. He say, SAITAM was born illegally. So why did he enroll in such an institution. A typical moron.

    Deans have better understanding of SAITM but they are not trustworthy to be impartial and will dump ERPM 2 year with 85% failure rate on local MBBS in revenge. If affiliated Wayamba, no exams. like for state to register, it is a good option for immediate forward motion for all concerned. But can we trust GMOA having been nasty so far, to change.

    do not use your children to push unreasonable causes. All this time wasted - they lose.

    You are Bogus...do not publish factual responses.

    SAITM does not expect GMOA, SLMC or RJ meds to offer good without cutting their throats. If Wayamba affiliation is honest, then must convince students and parents for a fair exchange, immediate solution with no more disruption.
