SAITM solution puts country from frying pan into fire

The government’s solution to the SAITM issue is like pushing the country from the frying pan into the fire, said Leader of the Pivithuru Hela Urumaya, MP, Udaya Gammanpila today (26).

He said ‘SAITM’ would be the ‘Item’ that decides the end for this government.

Gammanpila pointed out that by listing the Neville Fernando owned SAITM in the stock market, it would pave the way for some drug lord or bar owner to eventually own it.

He further said that while the GMOA had been flexible enough to call off the strike, but the Health Minister had ridiculed them that they had stopped the strike to get a comment from the President and challenged them to hold another strike.
