KC gathers support in protest
Sep 1, 2015-The protest of Dr Govinda KC garnered widespread support from several parts of the country as the fast-unto-death of the orthopaedic surgeon entered its eighth day on Monday.
In Dharan, doctors and students took out a silent rally supporting Dr KC. The doctors demanded that the government should pay heed to Dr KC’s points seriously and also ensure that he is not compelled to stage another strike for reforms in medical education.
Meanwhile, doctors attending Dr KC said that he has developed chest pain since Sunday, a worrying sign of his deteriorating health. “He is exhausted. If he continues, it could be really bad,” said Dr Divya Singh.
Dr KC is on his sixth fast-unto-death demanding immediate implementation of Kedar Bhakta Mathema-led committee and an end to political appointment in universities, among others.
