GUJRANWALA:


“The young doctors have not only embarrassed their profession but also the city by misbehaving with and attacking their senior doctors. It is hard to understand their motive,” PML-N Deputy Information Secretary Khurram Dastagir Khan said on Tuesday.


Taking to reporters, he said, Rs4.5 million from tax money was spent on each of the doctors who graduated from public medical colleges. “They might have issues with the government, but they should not create problems for the people whose taxes helped them become doctors.”

He said the doctors had benefited the most during the five years of PML-N government in the Punjab.

“They should ask their seniors. They will tell them that they were paid Rs2,500 per month during house job. Medical officers now get Rs40,000 per month,” he said.

He said doctors couldn’t refuse to treat even their enemies.

Following is just one of the ideas for prevention of future strikes by young doctors because they are notorious for going on strike. There should be strike tax on their pay. This tax should be 50% of their pay. Health dept should keep this money in a separate account. In case of strike by YDA , this should be utilized to hire new doctors.This is like rainy day fund. So at present ,they are paid Rs 40000 per month, so take out 20000 per month out of their pay check.
