* Sri Lanka state doctors' union warns of unannounced strike if fake solution given to SAITM issue
Sat, Sep 30, 2017, 09:57 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Sept 30, Colombo: Sri Lanka state doctors' union, the Government Medical Officers' Association (GMOA) threatened to launch an indefinite strike without prior notice if the authorities provide a false solution to the issue regarding the South Asian Institute of Technology and Medicine (SAITM) and fail to provide a permanent solution.

The GMOA says there is no other alternative except abolishing the SAITM, which is also known as private medical college.

The Secretary of the GMOA Dr. Haritha Aluthge said the maximum possible support will be given to the SAITM struggle by the medical graduates who are waiting for residency assignments.

The Secretary said the decisions were taken unanimously at an emergency meeting of the GMOA's central committee held on Friday (29).
