RAWALPINDI: Young Doctors Association (YDA) Rawalpindi chapter has denounced Punjab government decision of imposition of ban on house job of graduate doctors from private and foreign medical colleges in the government hospitals.

Doctor Walid Abbasi said this is ill conceived decision by Punjab government and is sheer injustice with the young doctors and their parents. All the government hospitals are manned by 60 percent trainee doctors who have acquired their MBBS degree from private medical colleges or from abroad. If this decision is not withdrawn then the hospitals will have to face a massive brain drain and young doctors and their parents a perpetual agony.

The YDA has demanded for immediate withdrawal of such orders saying the perpetuation of these orders will do only disservice to the nation.
