Partial YDA strike continues in Lahore hospitals

Partial YDA strike continues  in Lahore hospitals

LAHORE: The YDA strike Friday continued partially in different hospitals of the provincial metropolis including Jinnah Hospital and Services Hospital. 

On the other hand, the Punjab government continued its action against the doctors for creating problems for the patients. Reportedly, services of Dr Adnan, Dr Amir Bandesha and Dr Salman Haseeb were repatriated to Special Healthcare and Medical Education Department following which emergency services were suspended at Punjab Institute of Cardiology for quite some time.

Meanwhile, the deadlock between YDA Punjab and the government continued as dialogue between the two again remained inconclusive as the young doctors failed to convince the department about their demands. 

Sources said the YDA leadership was in trouble and the association now wanted a face-saving with certain conditions but the health department did not agree to their unjust demands including withdrawal of cases (also those with Anti-Corruption Establishment) against
some YDA leaders. The YDA’s desperate situation could also be noticed from its social media platform where the association has been “lamenting” lack of support from the fellow doctors at public hospitals. 

One such Facebook post on YDA Jinnah Hospital page reads “my question from the community is that whether they have any responsibility and role to play or not?

“They do have a role to play; they should have unanimously said yes to the call of leadership and should have unanimously supported community through this time of crisis. But things are opposite here”.
