    Appoint high level legal illuminaries too after reconstituting SLMC. Deans children today have to sit ERPM and deans examine their own children. That is current SLMC justice

    There must be an overall policy paper on private medical education. The SAITM issue would be a part of it -if not there would be never ending problems to the detriment of students education standards and the country. via DM Android App

    We have unbiased men but they are members of some of these organisations that oppose SAITM. Further their life and limb will be at risk if their independant views supports SAITM as their views or decision will not be liked by GMOA mafia. Hold one Final exam for all Medical Colleges in Sri Lanka including SAITM and ask the foreign gradutaes who seek registration also to sit the same exam

    Deans want to stop admissions to SAITM so job agencies can send abroad.

    Palitha Galapitiya Saturday, 11 February 2017 07:15 PM

    Please do honour the court decision. Committee is unnecessary. Show countrymen that our President have a Back-born.

    upali Saturday, 11 February 2017 11:55 AM

    Can you find unbiased experts? I doubt.

    Vijith Pieterz Saturday, 11 February 2017 03:48 PM

    President knows what to do, unlike half educated MR.

    German Jacob Saturday, 11 February 2017 03:44 PM

    No need to teach our President, he knows what to do.

    Bubble Banda Saturday, 11 February 2017 03:41 PM

    You promised and did all, no doubt - but how about keeping the culprits of previous regime leaders

    German Jacob Saturday, 11 February 2017 03:36 PM

    Very good Sir, before that appoint a strong committee to trap all previous regime looters played out in billions.

    ahamed Saturday, 11 February 2017 03:32 PM

    we should have unbias and solution oriented committee, there are a number of committees so far no result.

    Mandy Saturday, 11 February 2017 02:43 PM

    When you read the full judgement of court you can see the double standards and bias of SLMC.

    chamithroshanwijenayake Saturday, 11 February 2017 01:03 PM

    You may implement what Deans of 08 Medical Faculties proposed to SLMC.

    Daham Saturday, 11 February 2017 12:04 PM

    Is he going to delay the court order until he gets the committee report or else appeal to the higher court until such time?
