Govt. Ayurveda Doctors Association to take trade union action
Posted in Local News
The Government Ayurveda Doctors Association states that its members will refrain from work by obtaining sick leave.
Secretary of the Association Dr. G. Hewage stated that this trade union action is being taken as no proper solution has been given to their problems. It will be continued until their issues are resolved.
When we contacted the Deputy Minister of Indigenous Medicine Pandu Bandaranayaka in this regard, he stated that steps will be taken to hold discussions with the Association in order to provide solutions to the pending issues.

Dear A/doctors, if you are really sick you can enter into a govt. hospital ,otherwise you may continue with your trade union actions.Impact will be minimal.
Not many people attend or believe in Ayurveda treatment. This hospital in Rajagiriya and other places are subsidised by the govt to provide treatment for the few who believe it helps. Ayurveda physicians’ strike in any form will make no huge impact on the nation. What fools! They should be kicked out of the service. Do we need these Ayurveda hospitals at all? In my limited view I don’t think this treatment works. It is a waste of money for the govt to continue to have these hospitals and subsidise them. Let the fools open private practices and see how difficult it is to earn a living. I wonder also whether these fools have become pawns of the JVP militant wing, as some naive university students have become. The red ‘clenched fist’ salute of their poster gives me this impression.
