If the Presidential Committee, chaired by Deputy Minister of National Policies and Economic Affairs Dr. Harsha de Silva, decides to turn SAITM into a non-profitable entity via SLIIT or any other institution without completely nationalising it, the Government Medical Officers’ Association (GMOA) will reconsider its participation to the committee, GMOA Secretary Dr. Haritha Aluthge said.
Addressing a recent press conference, Dr. Aluthge said the association took part in two committee meetings upon invitation and that Dr. Silva was making several attempts to resolve the matter.
“All participants were requested by Chairman Dr. Silva not to inform the press about the ‘sensitive talks’ as they would influence the decisions taken by the committee. Therefore, the GMOA did not expose what were discussed. We waited and watched the situation on two occasions but could not bear any longer. Therefore, we forwarded our observations to Dr. Silva. The committee was appointed to look into what has to be done to make the October 29 government stance a reality,” he said.
Meanwhile, GMOA Assistant Secretary Dr. Naveen De Zoysa said the Deputy Minister was trapped in a snare and in search of a solution to the matter.
"My new committee is only to implement the president’s recommendations. That’s all what I have to say.” Dr. Harsha de Silva responded. (Thilanka Kanakarathna)

GMOA is a serious threat to freedom of education in Sri Lanka. It is high time for people to come to street to protect it.

So GMOA has now confirmed that they are not for private medical schools. They don't say Why. It is to fatten their pockets by training foreign medical students for EPRM exam. Personal gain.

GMOA THOUGH PROFESSIONALS MAY BE FEELING INFERIORITY COMPLEX AS THEY CONSIDER THE MEMBERS OF THE COMMITTEE COMES FROM A HIGHER CLASS THAN THEM

Is there anyone can make a decision to ban this organization as it is hurting the country and it's people's human rights. It is a gross violation of Human Rights of the citizens of this country every time they open their dirty mouths.

Thank you GMOA and all others for fighting for the rights of innocent patients as they want to consult well qualified doctors who have done Bio Science and passed well at the Advanced Level exam. Keep it up, till the ambition is achieved.

GMOA people talk every subjects as they are the expert on them. President of GMOA talk about economy recently. (http://divaina.com/daily/index.php/puwath-2/4005-2017-12-02-04-41-73). GMOA thinks Sri Lanka does not have a government and they are the rulers of the country.
Park Tuesday, 05 December 2017 06:58 PM
Its time President takes firm action against GMOA. There is no point in giving them special concessions such as importation of cars, selection of schools for their children etc. These concessions which ordinary citizens do not have should come attached with conditions that they do not take political actions whereby GMOA strikes and plays with the lives of the citizens.
