Jul 14, 2018-A protest rally was organised at Maitighar Mandala in Kathmandu on Saturday to express solidarity with Dr Govinda KC, who has been staging an indefinite hunger strike at Karnali Academy of Health Sciences Julma for the past two weeks.
The protesters staged demonstration saying that the government didn’t take any concrete step to save the life of the senior orthopaedic surgeon at Tribhuvan University Teaching Hospital (TUTH).
People from different walks of life including civil society leaders and doctors marked their present at the protest rally.
Dr KC, whose health condition is deteriorating, has been refusing any treatment until his demands were addressed. Dr KC has been demanding that the national medical education bill should be endorsed based on the agreements reached between him and the government earlier.
