Harsha presents solution to SAITM issue


Deputy Minister of National Policies and Economic Affairs and Chairman of Presidential Committee on SAITM Dr. Harsha de Silva has stated that the South Asian Institute of Technology and Medicine (SAITM) will be wound up before the end of this year.

He assured that a solution will be formulated for the students who had been registered before and are currently studying at SAITM. The solution will be in accordance with the University Grants Commission Act.

He made this observation while making a Ministerial Statement in Parliament obtaining special permission. He added that student admissions would be discontinued and the existing students would be given a solution. We hope that the parents engaged in a hunger strike near the National Hospital suspend their action and the medical students of state universities will discontinue their actions and return to lectures. The decision was taken following discussions with all stakeholders, including the Acting Presidential Secretary Sumith Abeysinghe, Prime Minister’s Secretary Saman Ekanayake, the association of medical undergraduates’ parents and the Minister of Higher Education.
