The Government Medical Officers Association (GMOA) today said they would give two weeks to the government to solve issues of South Asian Institute of Technology and Medicine (SAITM) in Malabe, the Indo-Lanka trade agreement and budget proposals pertaining to state sector.

If the government fails to do so, the GMOA threatened of a massive trade union action with other island wide trade unions during the first week of January.

    No private medical colleges. Then no private practice for doctors.

    Samson Monday, 21 December 2015 05:05 PM

    Interesting to note those who had a free education at the cost of the taxpayers have forgotten the past and now not interested in serving those who educated them.Well done GMOA!

    Premalal Monday, 21 December 2015 05:39 PM

    They would have been in a Goma heap (cow dung heap).

    Jimmy Tuesday, 22 December 2015 02:25 AM

    Indians will Flood Sri Lanka if this government continues!

    chamila Monday, 21 December 2015 05:39 PM

    MR didnt sign the CEPA, if the CEPA comes in there will be Indian Engineers, IT professionals and accountants working for half the rate of Sri Lankans and bring in fierce competitin to the locals. this has to be opposed at every cost

    Bala Monday, 21 December 2015 05:54 PM

    Professionals must act so - not like common thugs even threatening a duly elected government for narrow selfish ends.

    karsha Monday, 21 December 2015 05:59 PM

    Since I am a civilised person not educated like you (Luckily)I WILL NOT USE FILTH. Remember the OTH you took when you became doctors. No conditions for that.

    Sapu Monday, 21 December 2015 06:05 PM

    Its doctors who are being narrow minded and selfish, we need more like SAITM

    palle Monday, 21 December 2015 06:13 PM

    Very true. In fact other professionals like Engineers should be ashamed of themselves for not realizing the danger of opening Sri Lankan job market for Indians.

    lion Tuesday, 22 December 2015 05:38 AM

    This should not be allowed to continue, find some ways to control this Mafia.It is not long way that the day is near when the people start assaulting doctors.

    KOLA KOTIYA Monday, 21 December 2015 02:38 PM

    Janathawa Monday, 21 December 2015 02:46 PM

    All these difficult issues, the best solution is to have country wide referendum so that the people can decide. Then the Unions cannot oppose for what the general public needs.

    Leo Monday, 21 December 2015 10:39 PM

    CID and the police take legal action against those who sabotage the country and prepairing to disrupt traveling and day to day activity. via DM Android App

    thilanga Monday, 21 December 2015 10:39 PM

    GMOA is trade union. how they force govenment to stop private uni. there is private uni for other sujects. then why not for medicine .people have to decide that. most people want this to happen.

    Dee Monday, 21 December 2015 10:40 PM

    Just give these guys the permit. Max its a million of our money. How many poor people will suffer due to trade union action? Better give the poor a dole and charge these guys fees for studying.

    Blair Monday, 21 December 2015 11:09 PM

    They have no problem with doctors passing out from chittagong university practicing here,do they know the standards there.

    lalith Monday, 21 December 2015 03:16 PM

    They are asking Indian doctors come here wholesale.

    rishan Monday, 21 December 2015 11:16 PM

    I am an engineering graduated from the university of Adelaide. Australia and there there is a quota system for international student and also they consuder diploma holders from TAFE. At the end of the day they everone sits gor the zame exam and have to fullfill the points system in order to complete the degree. This way everyone will have an equal opportunity and beneficial for the university as well.

    damx Monday, 21 December 2015 11:32 PM

    what a jokE!!!!! I cant believe the doctors in Srilanka are professionals

    Lucky Monday, 21 December 2015 11:34 PM

    Hope this will snowball into a major turning point.
