PIC Attack Damages: Health Minister Takes Doctors into Confidence


LAHORE– An important meeting was held at the Punjab Institute of Cardiology (PIC) Lahore on Thursday under the chair of Health Minister Dr Yasmin Rashid to review the post Wednesday’s attack damages.

Addressing the meeting, health minister assured that government is siding with the doctors who became victim of torture.

She added the government would provide financial assistance after estimating the damage caused to government properties and doctors’ vehicles.

No one can be allowed to attack hospitals, she emphasized. The minister reiterated her support to the doctors’ community and strongly condemned the vandalism at the PIC.

The attacking lawyers have challenged the writ of the government by stopping the treatment of patients. All the criminals involved in attack on the PIC will be brought to justice, she added.

Attacking the doctors is highly condemnable. I and other ministers were made victim of torture and we are standing with the doctors’ community.

The doctors and patients will be provided complete protection in the government hospitals, she concluded. Additional Secretary Dr. Asif Tufail, MS PIC Dr. Muhammad Ameer, Chief Cardiologist Dr. Saqib Shafi and faculty members attended the meeting.— PRESS RELEASE
