LAHORE: Following a decision by the General Council of the Young Doctors Association (YDA) last week, a peaceful protest was held at the Lahore General Hospital on Thursday.

The protest is supposed to be the first in a series of protests which are expected to be held in the coming days by the YDA until their demands regarding service structure are fulfilled.

The protest, unlike those last month, did not stop doctors from performing their duties at the Outpatient Departments (OPD) and in the emergency wards and treatment of patients at the hospitals continued as per routine.

The YDA has announced that it will hold peaceful protests across the Punjab till August 13. The protests are expected to continue until the demands for service structure revision for doctors employed by the Health Department are met.

The next YDA protest us due to be held at the Punjab Dental Hospital on July 28

    Lets see if the so-called Khadim-e-Aala and his paid internet warriors have the guts to appreciate this CIVILIZED protest of YDA.
    Will the media now ask Shahbaz Sharif why he is not giving the Doctors a Service Structure?

    Who is covertly supporting these greedy doctors? The doctors in Punjab are drawing much hefty salaries as compared to doctors in other 3 provinces….

    These money-grabbers are supported by PPP’s proxy called Khan…
    The nexus of Pervaiz Ilahi+Rehman Malik+ Imran Khan are all hand in gloves against the Punjab Government. But they will InshaAllah fail miserably in their nefarious designs.. AAMEEN!!!Recommend
