Doctors continue boycott for second day in Quetta as talks with govt fail
April 7, 2020
QUETTA (92 News) – Doctors continued their boycott of the government hospitals for the second day in protest against the arrest of young doctors and paramedics on Tuesday. The talks between the doctors and the government failed. The Young Doctors Association spokesperson said that they would remain in police stations till provision of protective equipment. He called for the resolution of the problems of doctors. He said that protective kits should be provided to doctors immediately. The protesting doctors who spent the night in police stations despite their release said that they would stay there till fulfillment of their demands. They demanded that the government should have probed why the police tortured them. On the other hand, Balochistan CM Jam Kamal said that young doctors are playing in the hands of mafia. “The locking of the offices of medical superintendent is an inappropriate act,” he said. He said that the cabinet had approved 1,400 vacancies for doctors during a meeting on Monday. “Had the government not been serious if would have not approved recruitment against vacant posts,” he added. Meanwhile, Sindh doctors also continued their silent protest. PMA secretary general Dr Pir Manzoor said that doctors who are on the frontline in the war against coronavirus themselves are not safe. He condemned the arrest of doctors in Quetta.
