I have no personnel deal with SAITM – Minister

rajitha senarathnaHealth Minister Rajitha Senarathne said that he does not have any personnel deal with ‘SAITM’.

 At a meeting with a group of doctors at the Health Ministry, the minister pointed out that he has only a policy problem with SAITM.

The minister said that the Deans of the medical faculties of all the universities have presented him a set of proposals and he will discuss with them on the 15th of this month.

“Students’ unions are continuing protests against SAITM. I have no problem about the students’ mentality. But, there are certain issues regarding the behavior of other political parties towards this problem”, the minister said and requested those parties to stop fishing in muddy water.

The department assists media in a macro level in welfare, training, policy planning and accreditation, and providing easy access to Government news and information.
