The GMOA today announced it would launch a countrywide work stoppage from 8.00 a.m. tomorrow as planned over several issues including the suppression of university students’ rights and the attempt to abduct university students.

The GMOA said they decided to stop work because there had been no positive response from the authorities even though they had informed the President, Prime Minister and the Health Ministry regarding tomorrow’s strike action.

It said the strike action would not affect the maternity hospitals, cancer hospitals, children’s hospitals, emergency treatment units and dengue treatment units. (Thilanka Kanakarathna)

    I cannot understand how the majority doctors (supposedly educated and expected to serve) go like buffaloes led by the nose by a few radical political goons, to strike at will and inconvenience patients.

    channa Monday, 24 July 2017 03:39 PM

    we know there will be strikes very often till 2020. please have a press conferance and say the days you will work, so that the poor inocient patients don't have to waste their time and buss fare.

    IK Monday, 24 July 2017 04:03 PM

    It is the responsibility of the government to think of poor patients without playing hide and seek!

    The GMOA is holding the nation to ransom. Our leaders are watching without taking any action. Why not the GMOA first put the the Doctors and their service to the Government hospital in order

    lankan Monday, 24 July 2017 04:21 PM

    GMOA Strikes have become like needing oxygen to breath we have got used to this madness and don't care anymore

    joshua Monday, 24 July 2017 04:28 PM

    Communique should add (apart from children's ward, cancer hospital etc) to state that the strike action will not impact private practice

    Aussie Monday, 24 July 2017 04:41 PM

    GMOA GUYS, Keep in mind that you will never ever be able to win this fight. Not only you will lose this fight,but also your wives and children will lose their future. Thank you.

    Good Citizen Monday, 24 July 2017 04:53 PM

    Please send all doctors to the Cardiology to check their hearts. It is the poor who are going to suffer with this action.Doctors! Please have mercy.

    Take GMOA to International Criminal Court.

    Sumal Monday, 24 July 2017 05:45 PM

    GMOA is the biggest terrorist organization in SL. It is a crime against humanity if anyone entrusted on essential services to stop work.

    apsara Monday, 24 July 2017 06:01 PM

    I wish to have a leader like late Premadasa at this time to teach them a lifetime lesson lesson.

    WILLIAM Monday, 24 July 2017 06:10 PM
