Thousands took Twitter to record the protest against Pakistan’s medical practitioner’s regulatory authority.

A heartbroken student wrote, Today I sold out my dreams with a heavy heart for 3 years I kept trying to clear MDCAT but failed. Now I just quit goodbye to my best friends.

The young doctors also joined the ongoing protest against the PMC.

The student's staged sit-in at multiple cities in Sindh. They called upon the federal and provincial governments to take notice of the matter.

Famous social activist Dr. Ammar Jan also joined the protest at Governor house Lahore to support medical aspirants.
