Parents of students are preparing to begin a ‘Sathyagraha’ campaign today (19th) in solidarity with the campaign begun by medical faculty students to demand the government to abolish SAITM medical degree selling illegal institution at Malabe.
The General Secretary of the Medical Faculty Students Parents’ Association Attorney at Law Gamini Ekanayaka said parents are joining students’ campaign as the government has failed to respond to the ‘Sathyagraha’ campaign medical students had begun several months ago demanding the closure of SAITM illegal medical degree selling institute.
The ‘Sathyagraha’ campaign commenced on 21st January, 2016 from Ragama and Karapitiya Medical Faculties and by the end of January that year students in all other medical faculties joined the campaign to demand the government to abolish SAITM.
The ‘Sathyagraha’ campaign has continued for 550 days but the government has not responded to the campaign yet.
They would launch a continues ‘Sathyagraha’ if the government doesn’t take steps to solve the issue states Medical Faculty Students’ Parents’ Association.
