GMOA Secretary Dr Naveen D Zoysa said the strike in the Central Province was the fifth phase of their struggle to stop what they termed ‘producing of substandard doctors’.

A demonstration and protest rally will also be held in the evening with other anti-AITM movements in the Kandy town, he said. The demonstration will commence at 8 a.m. in Kandy and continue till noon. The rally will be held at Getambe MC Playground at 2 p.m.
