While stating that the latest stand taken by the government regarding the SAITM cannot be regarded as the final solution to the issue, the GMOA today said that they need further clarification on the proposed steps.
The government announced on Sunday that it had decided to abolish the SAITM and convert it into a non-profit making institution coming under the University Grants Commission (UGC).
GMOA Secretary Dr. Haritha Aluthge told a news conference that there were several points to make clarifications and amendments even though some positive facts were included in the given decision.
He said that the GMOA was attempting to find a final solution to the SAITM issue through the decision given by the government recently.
“This decision was announced by the Director General of the Government Information Department. We hope that this decision is the one which President Maithripala Sirisena has guaranteed to provide. We have requested for a discussion with President Sirisena for further clarification several days before. We did not receive a positive response to it yet,” he added.
He said that the GMOA was ready to take a step forward by discussing these facts with the government and added that it was questionable whether the government was ready for it.
He said that they would wait a few days for a positive response from President Sirisena and other related authorities with regard to the issues they had raised before and added that the decisive decisions would be taken following the GMOA’s Central Committee which would be meeting on Monday.

GMOA can propose as an amendment that students passing from private medical colleges at home or overseas must sit for EPRM exam. If accepted they will be the happiest as their tutoring students for EPRM for very high fees can continue. They fought the SAITM issue to protect their tutoring business.

I am not sure why government still allows these terrorist to act like this. This organization should be banned. Karlo is the main responsible man for this entire mess; see what he said few years ago. His agenda is nothing else but to get cheap popularity. Parents should file a human right case against these kinds of people for violating kids education rights by forcing them to boycott their studies. This is sham. These innocent kids are just trying to start their life, as adults we should be sham for ourselves. Where were these heroes when SAITM was started back in 2009? Why couldn't they stop this at right there? Only victims of this entire game were students, nobody else. Doctors never stopped their PP, people like Karlo fulfilled their agenda by getting self-satisfaction in getting cheap popularity, Kids of almost all leaders of JVP have studied in private universities, leader of peratugami is a citizen of Australia and leave the country anytime, Isn't this a joke that these inno

While GMOA opposing SAITEM these jokers are sending their children to International schools. So in their mind they do not want all the children who can afford to have private education but only their children.
