A Spokesman of BSAC told Balochistan Voices that tactics such as uprooting the camp will not deter the organization from continuing the protest. “The protest will continue despite all such odds,” added the spokesman.
BSAC had already restored its protest camp at the time of filing of this new report.
Balochistan Government has announced establishment of three new medical colleges in the province since 2008. Even after 9 years the colleges have not formally started imparting medical education despite completion of construction of buildings and hiring of lower level staff.
It’s alleged that Health Ministry of Balochistan is creating hurdles for starting of new colleges on flimsy pretexts.
Letter to Chief Secretary
Former Chairman of BSAC, Dr. Ababagar Baloch, had written a letter to Chief Secretary Balochistan which is as follows.
It has been claimed by BSAC that this letter has been received by Chief Secretary.
