As the provincial government invoked Essential Services Act in public hospitals across KP, there the medics also took to streets waving black-colored flags and chanting slogans against the government.
Whether senior medics or junior, the entire medical fraternity protested in favor of their demands.
At Hayatabad Medical Complex, the doctors inquired patients in a tent outside OPD, while on the other hand some protesting medics were seen preparing to deal with possible baton-wielding law enforcers.
The patients suffered most amid all this.
The KP government has warned that there is no guarantee for striking employees to continue their service.
Meanwhile, special advisor to PM, Ameer Muqam also reached Hayatabad to hold talks with protesting doctors.
