    Patient care is the last thing in these doctors' mind. If a politicians breaks wind standing against a doctor, they go on strike. The doctors need to know that the courts are there to deal with non-medical issues and the doctors acceptedthe job to look after the health of the nation.

    Uneducated politicians insulting professionals such as teachers, doctors etc. What a shame for the country.

    If people from all professions are going to strike every time a politician makes a stupid comment, this country will be having strikes everyday. Who are to be blamed? We (including most of these docs) are even more idiots to repeatedly elect these people into power!

    What a hilarious situation ..A Politician insults doctors and they go on strike promptly, punishing poor patients who have nothing to do with the insulting & have no other means than a government hospital,. It seems the doctors are worse than the politicians.

    Egocentric politicians thinks they know everything. This time Our Hon. governor learnt a good lesson from doctors. Last week, according news report he insulted all Zonal Directors of Education in Central Province. Education authorities must learnt from doctors. Who spoiled education. Politicians not the administrators
    Good lesson!
