The doctors of Pakistan Medical and Dental Council (PMDC) and Young Doctors Association (YDA) on Friday failed to submit reply in the Lahore High Court (LHC) over their strike being staged across Punjab despite the court orders.

The LHC judge justice Ijazul Hassan hearing the case and expressing displeasure over the non-submission of reply, remarked that the court had already termed the strike of young doctors as illegal, adding that the court knows how to get its orders implemented.

The LHC judge giving a deadline of January 25 to submit a reply to PMDC and young doctors adjourned the hearing.
