KARACHI - Steering Committee for Saving National Institutions: JPMC/NICVD/ NICH met here on Saturday and expressed serious concern on news reports regarding making JPMC a constituent hospital of Sindh-Jinnah Medical University.

The meeting attended by Prof Iqbal Afridi, Prof Shaukat Ali, Dr Usman, Dr Suleman and others decided to save the national identity of the JPMC. They said the JPMC represents not only Sindh province, but the whole Pakistan, as it is providing free of cost medical facilities to the patients belonging to all provinces of the country without any discrimination.

They said handing over this prime hospital to a medical university would be injustice to the patients of whole country.

They determined that their struggle to save JPMC, NICVD and NICH would continue.
