House committee draws govt's attention towards Dr KC's demands
Aug 31, 2015-
A team headed by Chairman of Legislature-Parliament Committee on Social Justice and Human Rights, Sushil Kumar Shrestha, on Monday took stock of the health status of senior orthopaedic surgeon Prof Dr Govinda KC, who is on a hunger strike, and drew the government's attention over his demands and the past agreement with him.
Expressing concerns over Dr KC’s deteriorating health condition, President Shrestha urged the government to take effective and swift actions to break the hunger strike of Dr KC.
Dr KC has been on fast-unto-death at Tribhuvan University Teaching Hospital (TUTH), Maharajgunj, demanding reforms in health and medical sector. Moreover, the Committee has demanded the government create an environment conductive to allow operation of other services excluding emergency services which have been disrupted by doctors of the Teaching Hospital.
