Government has issued a statement warning of action against doctors if they halted health services across the country.
The statement issued by Spokesperson at Ministry of Education, Science and Technology Baikuntha Aryal on Saturday night urged against halting health services at a time of natural disasters including floods and landslides hitting the country.
Nepal Medical Association (NMA), expressing solidarity with fasting Dr Govinda KC, had decided to halt all medical services for one hour in the morning from Wednesday at all hospitals across the country. Dr KC has been staging his 15th fast-unto-death at Karnali Academy of Health Sciences premises in Jumla seeking reforms in the country’s medical education sector.
The ministry immediately issued a statement warning of action if NMA goes ahead with the services shutdown.
