Education Minister asks TU VC to review Dean appointment
Jan 19, 2014-
Education Minister and Co-Chancellor of Tribhuvan University (TU) Madhav Poudel on Sunday directed the TU Vice Chancellor to re-think about the decision of Institute of Medicine (IoM) Dean appointment.
Minister Poudel dispatched a letter to VC Hira Bahadur Maharjan asking the latter to reconsider about TU executive council's decision to appoint Dr Sashi Sharma as the Dean of IoM.
TUTH's senior Dr Govinda KC is on a hunger strike for the past seven days against the appointment of Dr Sashi Sharma as the new IoM Dean.
Nepal Medical Association (NMA) has already announced stern protest programmes against the appointment and they have threatened to shut down services at both private and government hospitals across the country if their demands were not addressed by the authority.
Following the strike by NMA, hospitals across the nation have remained closed today except for the emergency services.
