June 24, Colombo: A tense situation has been reported in the Kalutara General Hospital when the Government Medical Officers' Association (GMOA) attempted to sign a petition against the Minister of Health, Dr. Rajitha Senaratne at the hospital premises today.

The public at the hospital premises protesting the signing of petition against the Minister clashed with the GMOA representatives. The GMOA has protested against the attempt by the hospital director to stop the clash.

However, the police intervened and settled the melee.

It has been reported that the people have set fire and destroyed the GMOA petition that was brought to the hospital to sign.

The GMOA doctors in Kalutara districts have now launched a token strike to protest the public obstructing the signature campaign against Health Minister.
