The Medical Faculty Students’ Activist Committee has decided to hold a protest march opposite the Vihara Maha Devi Park in Colombo this evening against the government.
Speaking to NewsRadio Imesh Sangeeth said the President and the government must step down.
He said all medical faculty students will join a protest march against the failed leadership of the country that is creating divisions amongst citizens whilst having failed to provide concessions to the public during the past 74 years despite the many promises.
He added the medical students are protesting against the shortcomings of the government that has burdened the public.
Sangeeth said the country that was ruined must be restored, adding there is no other alternative and the President must step down.
He claimed that the formation of an interim government is not a solution to the present crisis.
Sangeeth further stated protests will continue, with a large scale strike action held yesterday while an island wide hartal will be held on the 6th of May.
He said the country is facing destitution if the present crisis is not resolved promptly and the government fails to step down.
