Speaking at the weekly cabinet new briefing Wednesday, Minister Dr. Senaratne said former Sri Lanka Medical Council (SLMC) chairman Dr. Carlo Fonseka long time ago has said there were two terrorist organizations - one was the LTTE and the other was the GMOA.

He said that there are two groups who were in favor and against SAITM (South Asian Institute of Technology and Medicine) and the group against the resolving the SAITM issue was trying to keep SAITM issue till Mahinda Rajapaksa comes to power again.

The Minister said the group has selected a person for each district to contest the next election.

Minister Senaratne charged that the students who are not willing to participate in demonstrations were involved in the protests by inculcating fear among them by students unions. He said the GMOA doctors are also forcing the students not to attend the lectures.

Students' movements have been used to achieve political objectives, the Minister added.
