Pro-SAITM Ads: GMOA to complain to FCID against Rajitha, Kiriella

The Government Medical Officers' Association (GMOA) said today it would complain to the Financial Crimes Investigation Division (FCID) on the use of state funds by Higher Education Minister Lakshman Kiriella and Health Minister Rajitha Senaratne to publish advertisements on SAITM.

GMOA Secretary Navin de Zoysa said the two ministers were publishing advertisements favourable to SAITM which was a private institution.

He said it was unethical for the ministers to protect a fraudulent private institution by spending state funds.

Dr. de Zoysa said it was a matter of surprise to find the government misusing public resources when such action by the previous government was under investigation.

“We feel that the government has aggravated the SAITM issue through pro-SAITM proposals mentioned in the advertisements,” he said.

Dr. de Zoysa said what the two ministers should do was not to publish advertisements on behalf of the SAITM but to publish advertisements with their own money apologizing for the people for failing to reveal correct information in courts.

He said the GMOA hoped that the President would pay attention to the misuse of state funds. (Ajith Siriwardana)

    And belive me, our people (GMOA doctors) never ever use Government hospital facilities (time, medicine even stethoscope) for private practice.

    Initially you said standard is not acceptable and students do not have proper clinical exposure .GMOA further mentioned that course fee is around Rs1.2 million and these students are not sitting for any exam conducted by SLMC .You wanted minimum standards to be gazzeted.Now government has given a fair solution to all your compalints still you are asking pound of flesh and that is to abolish SAITAM. Contrary you all say that you are not opposing to private medical education in Sri Lanka.

    Helllo, Navin de Zoysa, when will you declare that you are going to contest the next election from the Kalutara District with the help of Rajitha. Only few people may know this. We know that you want to follow your grandfather who was a MP from Kalutata. Stop your show offs. By this message atleast the people will know your hidden agenda.
