The GMOA is planning to use the issue of the chairmanship of the SLMC to resort to strike action once again. It says the removal of Carlo Fonseka as its chair is illegal.
It argues Dr. Colvin Gunaratne, the person named to succeed him, is not suitable as he is partial towards SAITM. The GMOA wants to get the elderly Fonseka reappointed in order to rule the SLMC according to its wants. Fonseka has become a victim of their plans and wants to be back as the chairman.
The GMOA says it will stage a fasting if any other person is appointed, and is trying to get Fonseka to agree to it. Without giving any regard to patients’ lives, the GMOA is now trying to achieve its objectives even at the cost of Fonseka’s life.
