Private medical colleges on warpath
Sep 7, 2015-The Association of Private Medical and Dental College of Nepal has said that private colleges under the Association would be closed if the five-point demands put forth by the organisation were not addressed.
The Association said that its first-phase agitation was launched from Monday to pile pressure on the government.
Acting Chairman of the Association, Prof Dr Suresh Kumar Kanaudiya said that medical colleges of private sector would be closed automatically if the 11-point agreement signed between the government and Dr Govinda KC on September 5 was implemented. He said that the government should take responsibility for operating the private medical colleges.
He said that over 900 students would be deprived of their MBBS study if the report prepared by Kedar Bhakta Mathema-led taskforce was implemented.
The five-point demands include giving affiliation to those medical colleges that got licence from Education Ministry and monitored by the Nepal Medical Council, implementing the Mathema report after further study, among others.
