The Presidential Committee reviewing the SAITM issue has unanimously decided to hand over SAITM to the Sri Lanka Institute of Information Technology (SLIIT), the GMOA said yesterday.

General Secretary Haritha Aluthge said the GMOA took part in the third committee meeting held on Monday as an observer and the committee members unanimously voted in favour of the decision.

Dr. Aluthge said Health Minister Rajitha Senaratne for the first time had participated in the meeting, and had allegedly forced the members to vote in favour of the decision.

He said the Sri Lanka Medical Council (SLMC), University Grants Commission (UGC), Deans of the Medical Faculties and Vice Chancellors had voted in favour of the decision.

Following the committee’s decision, he said the SAITM controversy which has subsided for to extent may be aggravated further.

He also said that the GMOA would participate in future committee meetings and oppose the parties that support this decision.

However, the committee's Chairman, Deputy Minister Harsha De Silva did not confirm the GMOA’s statement but said they would be informed of any decision taken by the committee at a news conference to be held soon. (Thilanka Kanakarathna)

    Well done Harasha. You have made a correct decision. As Harasha too paid for his education he knows the importance of paid education. It is time Sri Lanka got out of the "Beggar Culture" expecting all from the state.

    THE FUNNIEST THING OF SAITM IS THAT NOT KNOWING WHAT IS NEXT.

    GMOA, if you want the SAITM or HIGHTM, make public your proposals and your offers. All you chaps must be making millions by practicing privately !!!

    You are wrong here. The GMOA will not be satisfied until a decision is taken NOT to have any private medical education in Sri Lanka.
