The GMOA represented by the President Dr. Anuruddha Padeniya and Secretary Dr. Haritha Aluthge met with the Prime Minister and Minister of Health Dr. Rajitha Senaratne yesterday night.

Addressing a media briefing today, Secretary of the GMOA Dr. Haritha Aluthge said the Prime Minister accepted the set of proposals presented by the union and undertook an in-depth study at the meeting.

Dr. Aluthge said the Prime Minister gave instructions to Health Minister Dr. Rajitha Senaratne in connection with continuing discussions based on the set of proposals presented by the GMOA and other two organizations.

"We received a very positive response," he said adding that the Premier clearly stated that he did not see anything in the proposals that cannot be implemented.
