Balochistan govt asks doctors to resume duties after agreeing to resolve issues
Statesman Report
QUETTA: Balochistan government spokesperson Liaquat Shahwani on Wednesday urged doctors and paramedical staff to resume duties after both parties reached an agreement under which the Young Doctors Association (YDA) had decided to end their protest against the provincial government.
While talking to media, Shahwani said that the government had accepted all rightful demands put forward by YDA, which include provision of medical kits to about 90% of the doctors. “We now request doctors to leave police stations and resume their duties,” he added.
Earlier on Monday, YDA had announced a boycott of their services in hospitals across Balochistan after Quetta police baton-charged doctors for protesting near the CM House.
One-hundred and fifty doctors were arrested for protesting against the lack of PPE in hospitals across the province to treat coronavirus patients.
