President of Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) and Leader of the Opposition in National assembly Shahbaz Sharif, has strongly condemned the Police’s batten charge on doctors and medical staff.
He said that Police’s violence on the doctors who fought against Coronavirus is regrettable.
Shahbaz Sharif said that instead of providing security kits to doctors, they were targeted the doctors.
He said that the logic of violence against those who put their lives in danger is incomprehensible.
Leader of the opposition said that the seriousness of the situation should be curtailed.
On the other hand, Pakistan People’s Party Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has reacted to the baton charge and arrest of doctors in Quetta and said that the demand for protective kits has led to government bullying of doctors in Quetta.
In his statement, Bilawal Bhutto said, “Instead of giving doctors a security kits government is sending them to jail.”
Bilawal Bhutto further said that the PTI government is making human rights threats by making arrests on legitimate demands. Doctors are fighting from the frontline against the Coronavirus pandemic.
It is pertinent to mention here that Police in Quetta has arrested more than 30 doctors and medical staff protesting against a lack of protective gear provided to them.
The young doctors and paramedical staff arrested after they refused to end their sit-in in the city’s security zone.
During the protests, police and demonstrating medical staff resorted to scuffling as well.
Police said that the medical staff arrested due to the violation of Section 144 and now sent to different police stations.
The incident came in the backdrop of more than a dozen doctors contracting the virus reportedly while discharging their duties.
