This is a joke. why don't they sign a petition to stop students going overseas for studies and spend millions. this is selfish just because a student cannot get into local university does not make them fools. give every one a chance, by opening private university's will help others, plus save the economy.

who cares for all i know people who can afford it will still send their children overseas for better education. study in an local university with the amount of ragging and strikes not a good idea. i strongly believe the government should go ahead with opening private universities.

We want to be exploited! An amazing display of the stupidity of ordinary people helping the richest group of professionals to maintain their monopoly hold.

Protest for the sake of protesting! What is the problem if there are private schools and colleges? None have explained that yet.

Monopolists are in action.! If private doctors come in, these monopolists will loose their turnout. That is why they go against this..

This is a disgrace. No intellectuals but IDIOTS to stop a private medical college in Sri Lanks

Well I also think, we should ban private practice, private hospitals, duty free cars, scholarships to private universities abroad especially the west and never to return..
Well they don't like to go to countries like Russia,India China (Why No jobs there just learn and get back ) This doesn't work well for them

Why are doctors against a PMC. Doctors enjoy special benefits that others dont. they get vehicles fee of tax. they practice in private while getting govt salaries. Thats what they are trying to protect - their special position. Im a poor govt employee who cannot do any private work without losing my job.

I think a counter protest should also be organised asking for signatures in support of the establishment of private medical colleges. I am sure the support would be just as much if not more.

Bloody good idea
