PESHAWAR: The incessant and unscheduled power outages forced doctors and paramedical staff in Khyber Agency on Monday to completely closed Agency Headquarters Hospital.

They wore armband and staged a sit-in outside the hospital claiming that patients as well the staffers of the hospital were faced with problems due to prolonged power outages.

They claimed that they were subjected to 15 hours power outages and despite several demands and protests the duration was not reduced.

The protesters said that vaccines worth hundreds of thousands rupees could become unusable due to prolonged power outages.

They also said that patients and their attendants bring torches and use hand fans to the hospital due to power outages. The protesters refused to disperse and start working despite assurance by political moharrar Irshad Mohmand that duration of power outages would be reduced.

The patients were the sole sufferers who demanded that if power was supplied during OPD timings then the protesting doctors have no right to lock the hospital.
