That number nine i think is fake, and why do they want all these documents and yet we scanned and send to them, it is just a formality which disadvantages other, most of the doctors are on strike, who will fill that form, why not private hospitals? Even the public hospital doctors do not examin, they just fill the form, what they yearn for is just money.

They should open schools.. Enough looting has been done in the two ministries to benefit a few individuals... They should not kill the education of the common child when their kids are learning online
