QUETTA: Balochistan government spokesperson Liaquat Shahwani on Wednesday urged doctors and paramedical staff to resume duties after both parties reached an agreement under which the Young Doctors Association (YDA) had decided to end their protest against the provincial government.

While talking to media, Shahwani said that the government had accepted all rightful demands put forward by YDA, which include provision of medical kits to about 90% of the doctors.

“We now request doctors to leave police stations and resume their duties,” he added.

Earlier on Monday, YDA had announced a boycott of their services in hospitals across Balochistan after Quetta police baton-charged doctors for protesting near the CM House.

One-hundred and fifty doctors were arrested for protesting against the lack of Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) in hospitals across the province to treat coronavirus patients.

The police, in response, said that doctors had been arrested as they were found in violation of Section 144, which bans public gatherings.

In this regard, the provincial government also directed the department of health to conduct hiring for 400 vacancies and to regularise the position of doctors appointed on an ad hoc basis.

While referring to the remand of health officials for stents purchasing scandal, the provincial spokesperson underscored that government will never compromise on public health.

The provincial spokesperson also paid regards to Chief of Army Staff (CAOS) for prioritising Balochistan while extending immediate aid and support to fight the pandemic.

Shahwani further reiterated that within a week, about 95 masks, 25,000 gloves along with other surgical instruments have been dispatched for doctors and paramedical staff in the province.

Assuring health professionals that government will take all possible measures to facilitate them, the provincial spokesperson requested doctors to cooperate and not deviate from their mission in this time of crisis.

"We request doctors to not become a part of any mafia [...] We will bring changes and facilitate them," he added.

Historical relationship between Kurd and Baloch.

The Kurds are the ethnical group living in a region known as Kurdistan which is divided into Iraq, Syria, Turkey and Iran. They  are struggling for an independent region since decades and they are famous for their female guerrilla fighters.        On 25 September 2017, the referendum for an independent Kurdish region  was held in Iraq with a turn out of 72 %.   On this important occasion, the historical relation between Kurd and Baloch people is worth discussing.       When it comes to history, every nation tends to find its roots and origin. Same goes with the Baloch people. The Baloch people are always curious  about  finding their roots in history. Even if you  talk to a shepherd in Balochistan, he will be curious to talk about his  tribal or ethnical roots.      The Balochs have always conveyed the history to the next generations in different mediums like poems etc. No Baloch before 20th century had written books on  history  or origin of the Baloch nation .
