YDA announces complete strike after baton-charged


PESHAWAR: Young Doctors Association (YDA) Wednesday announced a complete strike after police baton-charged the protesting medical practitioners in Peshawar the other day.

Eye witnesses said some of the staffers sustained injuries during the scuffle while some were also taken into custody for hyping violence.
The protesters maintained that the provincial government would not be allowed to amend MTI Act at any cost whereas they also demanded to sack chairman of hospital’s board of directors with immediate effect.
