The State Medical Students’ Parents’ Association has commenced a 'fast unto death', campaign, saying government's proposals to resolve the SAITM issue, cannot be accepted.
The fast began in front of the University Grants Commission this afternoon (06).
5 parents have joined this protest initiative.
Meanwhile, in a letter addressed to President Maithripala Sirisena, Chairman of SAITM, Dr. Neville Fernando says that the Committee which was appointed under the Chairmanship of Deputy Minister Dr. Harsha de Silva does not have a SAITM representation.
The President appointed this Committee to implement the recommendations of the previous committee which was also headed by Dr. Silva.
