The ‘unavailable’ personnel, he claimed, was receiving pay in the millions of rupees, while the building’s windows, doors, and restrooms were all damaged. He claimed that although staff members were stated on documents, they were not seen in the hospital.

Additionally, he gave the district administration orders to ensure that the owner of the land is promptly paid the cost of the property. He promised to give a thorough report to the head of the Senate committee on health, Bilalur Rehman, to make sure the hospital had all the resources it needed and that everyone who needed to be there was doing their job.
