Jan 20, Colombo: A Sri Lankan minister has blamed the powerful doctors' union, the Government Medical Officers' Association (GMOA) for reducing the duration of the four-year allied health science course to three years.

Higher Education Minister S.B. Dissanayake in response to the protests by students of the Allied Health Science Faculty of the University of Peradeniya over the curtailing of their course period has said the four year course was curtailed to three years due to opposition raised by the GMOA.

He suggested that the students to carry out their protests outside the residences of GMOA officials and not outside the University.

The University authorities had closed the Allied Health Science Faculty since January 13th after the undergraduates had kept away from attending lectures due to the sathyagraha against the curtailing of their course period.

Head of the Allied Health Science Faculty Students' Association, Rajitha Prasad has said that they would continue with the protest until the authorities address their issue.
