New med. association: a futile attempt by Rajitha - GMOA

Despite unlimited political sponsorships, Health Minister Rajitha Senaratne was able to gather only a mere 45 members to the newly-formed medical association, the Government Medical Officers’ Association (GMOA) said today.

GMOA Secretary Dr. Haritha Aluthge said among 18,000 doctors serving the government service, the minister was only able to recruit only a handful of those who were removed from the GMOA.

“Minister Senaratne aimed to destabilise the GMOA that has a rich history of over 90 years. He simply missed the shot. The Health Minister’s political hypocrisy is now exposed to the public. The minister should have understood by now that the GMOA is a challenge to his political career. He will never be able to challenge the GMOA,” Dr. Aluthge said. (Thilanka Kanakarathna)

    Quoting above article - "GMOA is a challenge to his political career"So it means that GMOA is in a Political hunt challenging Dr. Rajitha ?? So GMOA is now a political party ?Working together with JO ? "Yes" or "NO" ? I think its a "yes" for all 3 questions..

    ram Friday, 21 July 2017 03:11 PM

    exactly, that is what GMOA doing.

    Silva Friday, 21 July 2017 05:36 AM

    This Association is a curse to this country disguising as the controlling body of healers, only thing they do is dragging the country down the drain. What a misery? They vehemently opposed the Indian Ambulance service, but see what a service it provide to public?

    It appears you are about to destroy that proud history.Wake up stop politicking. Your recent behavior, self destructive.

    Dr. Waidyaratne Friday, 21 July 2017 07:32 AM

    Now facing public will be a huge struggle and a challenge to you and GMOA history. We all are practicing thanks to poor people's tax money, you look having disturbed by non availability of popular schools for your children and losing Rajapaksha's mas katu vehicle permits offers

    Ajja Friday, 21 July 2017 07:52 AM

    This is why they strike without concern and hold innocent patients as ransom.These are Terror Doctors and should not be tolerated..

    I'd love to know what grouse the GMOA will come up with after SAITM and Rajitha issues are solved!!!

    gamini Friday, 21 July 2017 09:38 AM

    this is the result of giving free education

    roshan Friday, 21 July 2017 12:02 PM

    These people lost commission on cardiac since the Government supplies them free cost, the pharmacy medication are much cheaper thanks to Pro Senaka Bibile and Dr. rajitha and you all lost the commission, you lost commission for the tests prescribed by Govt Hospitals and done at private hospitals,,, therefore it is natural that u strike citing SITEM and many other issues... your holidays were paid by the big pharmaceutical companies...

    Sofia Friday, 21 July 2017 10:27 PM

    Yes doctors angry with Rajitha as all medicines and equipment like stents now very low price and these doctors lose commission from Big Pharma. So angry with Rajitha.

    The masses the people of this country don't like what these doctors do, from comments and interviews by our side it's crystal clear that this GMOA not a legible organization. Who are these doctors to decide what the government should do? They can give suggestions and ideas. If anything goes wrong govt. got to answer. Why this GMOA so worried about private education only, there are lots of short comings in the govt. hospitals, the doctors' private practices and etc. It is evident the their motive is politics, GMOA is a political goons of a particular movement.
