Health Minister Dr.Rajitha Senaratne has charged that the Government Medical Officers' Association (GMOA) is attempting to exploit issues relating to the South Asian Institute of Technology and Medicine (SAITM) to create a national crisis with the objective of trying to bring Mahinda Rajapaksa back to power.
Speaking at a meeting in Kandy, he stated that the government provided a solution to the issues related to SAITM and the necessary follow-up action would be taken in line with the Court order regarding the issue. Certain people assume that he and Minister Lakshman Kiriella act against public interests. That's not so. We are following the Court order and are acting in accordance with it.
