LAHORE Pakistan Medical Association Lahore chapter President Dr Yasmin Rashid, Dr M Tanveer Anwar, Dr Salman Kazmi and others have protested to the statement of Prime Minister Gilani in the favour of 'criminal MNA Jamshed Dasti. They said that Dasti was involved in an attempt to murder the doctors of DHQ Muzafargarh and attack on the DHQ Hospital, which resulted in injuries to hospital staff and doctors. They added that the PM and the provincial government should not support such criminals whose arrest had already been ordered by the Chief Justice of Lahore High Court. The highest officials of government by issuing statements in the favour of criminals were totally negating the orders of CJ. The government has failed to provide security to the on duty doctors, and is backing criminals involved in attack on the DHQ Hospital, which is a matter of great concern, the PMA office-bearers remarked. They have appealed to the LHC Chief Justice to take notice of the statement issued by the PM and the provincial government, and ensure that his orders for the arrest of all nominated in the FIR are implemented.
