Prof. Carlo Fonseka requested the Government Medical Officers’ Association (GMOA) yesterday not to strike over issues pertaining to his extension in service as President of the Sri Lanka Medical Council.

Prof. Fonseka made this request when a GMOA delegation led by its President Dr. Anuruddha Padeniya and Secretary Dr Haritha Aluthge met him at his Nawala residence with a memorandum requesting him to remain in the post of SLMC Chairman and that the GMOA would resort to a countrywide strike if he was removed by the government.

“Please don’t strike on behalf of me. That would place the lives of innocent patients in danger,” Prof Fonseka told the GMOA top brass.

Prof. Fonseka said that he did not like doctors striking. He said he had held the post of SLMC Chairman for five years and additional six months with a service extension. He said he no longer needed to stay in that position.
