LAHORE - The Young Doctors Association (YDA) has announced a demonstration against the Punjab government’s decision of withdrawing 199 seats of house officers from seven hospitals and suspension of 62 officers from the General Hospital.

This was announced by YDA President Dr Javed Aheer, Dr Amir Bandesha, Dr Rai Ahmad and others while addressing a press conference on Friday. They announced a three-day partial strike in the hospital. They said withdrawal of 199 seats of house officers will also add to patient’s pain since only HOs are performing duties in different departments. The YDA office bearers warned the bureaucrats of health department to restore all the suspended doctors otherwise they would demonstrate across the province.
