Govt should increase medical colleges seats & scholarships: Sherry

Staff Reporter

Expressing her support and solidarity with the protesting students outside Pakistan Medical Commission, PPP Parliamentary Leader in the Senate, Senator Sherry Rehman said, “Our students from FATA and Balochistan have been sitting outside in this pandemic, protesting for their rights since the past 12 days.

It is shocking that no one from the government has come to listen to their grievances. Now these students are on a hunger strike since the last 2 days but once again.

“We are in the middle of a pandemic and now more than ever, we need qualified doctors, paramedics and nurses.

Instead of increasing seats for medical colleges, this is what the government is doing. The way these students are being treated is truly appalling. Who will take responsibility for this?”

“PPP will always stand with the students of this country and will ensure that their rights are protected.

We do not accept the illegal ordinance through which HEC is being destroyed and we demand that the seats and scholarships of these students are increased,” concluded Vice President PPPP Senator Sherry Rehman.
