QUETTA: Despite assurances from the Chief Minister of Balochistan, the problem of medical students could not be solved.
The students vowed that they will not accept any test against the rules. The protest sit-in of students of Lorai Medical College, Jhalawan and Makran Medical College in front of Quetta Press Club continued on the 36th day where students were recording their protest against the conduct of special test by PMC.
Students Imran Baloch, Sanaullah, Arbab, Waqar, Hidayatullah, Musaddiq, Haroon and others sitting in the protest camp said that the condition of students from Balochistan to pass special examination by Pakistan Medical Commission is unconstitutional and unfair.
Around 600 students passed the test on merit after which they were admitted in the medical college district quota seats. By the end of 2023, 50 students will have completed their studies and graduated. Surprisingly, he said that the health sector in Balochistan is already in dire straits due to which the people of the province who are facing difficulties in providing medical facilities, have resorted to medical colleges to meet the medical needs of the province. The establishment was a revolutionary decision which will fulfill the dream of making this sector active. The Chief Minister of Balochistan and the Provincial Minister for Health have promised to solve the problem but no practical steps have been taken yet.
