The SAITM campus in Malabe today distanced itself from statements being made by the Parents Association headed by Gemunu Wijeratne.
“We wish to inform the Sri Lankan public, that the self-acclaimed SAITM Parents Association headed by Mr. Gemunu Wijeratne has no relation nor is it the official association of parents for SAITM,” SAITM said in a statement today.
SAITM said that Wijeratne voices his personal opinion rather than the view of a majority of over 1500 parents.
SAITM says it will not be held responsible for the statements given through the association as it does not represent even a fraction of the number of parents of students attending the Medical Faculty. (Colombo Gazette)
