KARACHI: Karachi Medical and Dental College’s (KMDC) employees here on Wednesday held protest demonstration and blocked examinations over non-payment of salaries, ARY News reported.
The protestors barred the college’s administration from conduction a paper for third-year MBBS students today and announced to boycott the papers from tomorrow.
The charged protesters also stopped the KMDC’s principal and other professors from performing their duties. The employees were demanding of the concerned authorities to release their salaries.
