He said the appointment is under political influence and urged the government to appoint an independent person to preside SLMC which is an independent body.

Veteran academic and political activist Prof. Carlo Fonseka assumed duty as the new Chairman of SLMC on Monday.

Medical Faculty Students' Action Committee further said that the students of all medical faculties would be summoned to protest the appointment of Prof. Carlo Fonseka.
