Thu, Feb 16, 2017, 01:58 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Feb 16, Colombo: The Marxist party Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) affiliated Inter University Students Federation is scheduled to meet President Maithripala Sirisena today at the Presidential Secretariat to discuss the issue regarding the private medical college, South Asian Institute of Technology and Medicine (SAITM).

Representatives of the IUSF are expected to submit several proposals to the President regarding the private medical college.

In addition to the IUSF representatives, members of Medical Faculty Students Activists Committee and the Inter University Bhikkhu Federation are also expected to participate in the discussion.

Earlier President Sirisena assured that he will not allow any injustice to happen to the medical students of universities due to the SAITM and he will take an impartial decision regarding the institute.

During a discussion with the Government Medical Officers Association (GMOA) and the Sri Lanka Dental Association (SLDA), the President said he will appoint a committee of experts to consult all parties and advise the government.

"I will bring justice to every student while being impartial," he said.

However, the IUSF firmly says that the private medical college should be abolished.
