The Parents' Union of Medical Students (PUMS) today threatened that it would resort to fast unto death protest if a solution for the SAITM issue was further delayed.

In a joint press briefing held with the Malabe Medical College Parents Forum, it said the forthcoming month would be critical to the Government with the PUMS’ strong actions to be launched forcing the Government towards a legitimate solution.

PUMS Media Spokesman Dr. Nimal Karunasiri said that over 250 parents would join in the fast unto death protest and probably the Government would have to carry the burden if it cost lives.

He said that over two months had passed after the deans of the Medical Faculties proposed a resolution on SAITM issue, however the Government was delaying the enforcement of the proposal.

Dr. Karunasiri said that the President and the Prime Minister could not wash their hands just giving the responsibility to the Subject Minister therefore urged the Government the matter should be resolved without occupying more time. (Thilanka Kanakarathna)

    Why are you guys blaming the government for everything,can't you all council and convince your children also to cooperate with all parties while attending to their studies with out causing inconvenience to others.in this issue everyone has to cooperate.at the end of the day it's our own kids are learning from our money.it's not free education.so why can't we understand that.

    It is sad to note that GMOA and JO members who are opposing have their children studying in private institutions abroad and in SL. How can these people block a private institution in SL? If there are deficiencies in SAITM the let us all get together and resolve the issues so that those who want to study there can study.

    If it is ones wish, the go ahead if they consider it a worthy cause. These parents have fallen prey to the GMOA and the JVP as all there trumps failed.

    Committing suicide by hanging themselves is faster and more glamorous. Ask their children to join too.
