In the meantime when these orders were seen by public of bunjwah they expressed their concern over Health Department and particularly on Medical Officer PHC Nali who deputed such doctor for ECG Training rather than others .

In a press statement Mr Abid Hussain Malik said that Dr Nighat Ara who happens to be daughter in law of MLA Inderwal G M Saroori , never performs her duties satisfactory from last 10 years by getting the undue benefits of political influence . Mr Malik added that Dr Nighat Ara being a single female doctor in PHC Nali her non punctuality caused suffering atleast 40000 population of this area which is totally dependant on said PHC .
Mr Abid Hussain Malik further added that CMO and BMO Kishtawar are providing undue favour and support to lady doctor without mentioning the training period only to please the concerned MLA of the area whereas already surplus male staff / doctors are available for deputing for ECG training course and suffering of the female patients could be avoided .
Mr Malik urged upon Chief Medial Officer Kishtwar while keeping in view the sufferings of female patients of Bunjwah area to kindly cancelled the deputation of female doctor at an earliest soas public cannot suffer any more otherwise they will launch a massive agitation aganist concerned authorities .
