Can you beat that ? Doctors bite the hand that feeds them -lay siege to health ministry !

- striking doctors ruthlessly jeopardize lives of patients

(Lanka-e-News -22.June.2017, 11.30PM)  The GMOA (Government Medical Officers association) which is led by Dr. Padeniya and his terrorizing  group of medical practitioners proved most shamelessly beyond any doubt that it is a most evil  organization which cannot do anything good  to the state and the people . This organization through its terrorizing students laid siege to the building of the health ministry for several hours after chasing away the employees ,while the doctors also villainously and vindictively staged a strike   this morning in order to imperil  the lives of  the patients . The strike which was to last a day , was later most cruelly and ruthlessly extended indefinitely after a discussion held   this noon. The cruel irony of it all is these doctor villains bit the very hand that fed them by targeting  the very ministry which is paying them salaries.  

It is the argument  of Padeniyas that they had to stage  the strike as a retaliatory action against the police baton attack on the students (terrorists) who laid siege to the ministry . This villainous sudden decision was taken yesterday night without giving due notice trampling  union traditions and accepted norms. These selfish self seeking doctor mockers commenced the strike this morning Island wide . The helpless patients who came from far became aware of the doctors’ strike only after they visited  the hospitals this morning .

What a shame ! When these are  doctors who had taken the oath of Hippocrates and therefore should be in the vanguard taking  appropriate measures to combat the present dire situation in the country  which   is facing a national crisis, being threatened with an imminent  dengue epidemic following the ravaging  floods ( already over a thousand are afflicted by dengue , and nearly 200 patients have died ), are on the contrary ruthlessly  putting  the lives of patients in jeopardy citing   the SAITM issue despite the fact  the government has already proposed a solution for that . 

Minister of health Rajitha Senaratne convened a media briefing in this connection , and a special debate was  on in parliament this evening pertaining to the police attack on the anti SAITM protestors and the GMOA strike.
