The President and Prime Minister should immediately respond to the Mahanayake Theras request of resolving the SAITM issue as soon as possible, the Government Medical Officers’ Association (GMOA) said today.
Addressing a press briefing GMOA Spokesman Dr. Samantha Ananda warned that the issue could be further aggravated if the ‘two first citizens’ of the country remained silent on the matter.
He said that the Theras made the statement considering the inconvenience to the public because of the issue.
“Both the President and the Premier cannot just disregard the Theras’ statement as they are respected by the whole nation. As a country with traditional and religious values, the government should respect the Mahanayake Theras’ word without looking at the matter with hatred. The President and the Prime Minister cannot reject the request made by the Theras,” he said. (Thilanka Kanakarathna)
In the Buddhist philosophy, one dose not have to report to any one. It is to one self that one has to report. The Buddha showed the way. Today things have been twisted in Sri Lanka. The GMOA is a big joke.

People have not elected the Mahanayaka Theras to take policy decisions in this country nor the Cardinals.Their duty is to preach their repetitive Religions.Policy forming has to be done by a elected government

Why doesn't GMOA respond to the overwhelming majority of Sri Lankan citizens first, and set an example without being hypocrites?

Why don't the Mahanayakas come forward and negotiate a settlement.Its easy to say but difficult to do with mafia trade unions demanding the whole pound of flesh.

I think we all have a job to do, the doctors are supposed to treat the patients, the teachers are supposed to teach, the students are supposed to learn. The religious dignitaries are supposed to teach the citizens how to live peacefully, amongst each other according to the religious beliefs they have. The society is degrading. Who is responsible, Shouldnt we all do our job at least 95% best as we could and then all will be okay. It looks like every one now wants to become a part time politician.
