Dr KC warns of making public the names of lawmakers protecting ‘medical mafias’

- Post Report, Kathmandu

Sep 23, 2017-Dr Govinda KC has warned of making public the names of lawmakers protecting ‘medical mafias’.

Taking strong exception to the tabling of the revised Medical Education Bill in the Parliament by excluding important points of Mathema Committee report, Dr KC said that the Medical Education Bill was moved ahead to fulfill the vested interests of operators of Medical colleges.

Issuing a statement on Saturday, Dr KC, who has been fighting against irregularities in the medical education sector for long, said that ignoring the suggestions of Mathema Committee report means that the local representatives are playing with the health of Nepali people.

The crusader said that Gopal Bahadur Khadka and Chudamani Sharma who were found involved in embezzlement of millions of rupees from the state coffers should not be freed under any circumstances.

NOC Chief Khadka was sacked from the top post of the state-owned oil monopoly for his alleged involvement in financial irregularities while purchasing land plots to expand fuel storage facilities across the country.

Similarly, Sharma was arrested on charge of misappropriating revenue and settling taxes in a dubious way.

Dr KC also warned the government to be ready to face the repercussions if the Medical Education Bill was not endorsed in line with the suggestions of Mathema Committee report.

Dr KC reiterated that he would stage another round of hunger strike from October 6 if the government tried or overdue to pass the Medical Education Bill in an illegal way.
