  1. Idiot public…….only know how to create havoc. If they have so much of problems with the doctors , y the hell do they come begging infront of them. They should also know that doctors too have much pressure to save a patient.

  2. Gun use karna seeko. Atleast tango पर Goli chala shakthey हो for self defence. नई tho patients ko mandir masjid lay jaanay को bolo. Udhar किसको marenga

  3. Bridge course is the only solution, to provide the best treatment to the people

  4. This country will be berift of doctors. Doctors can be beaten. They can be tried by courts, consumer forum local thana, medical council and other authorities. Our people will not only get very poor medical care but also very expensive one in future

  5. Shameful …:u public just go to hell when ur beloved one fell sick
