Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli and Dr Govinda KC are holding a meeting at the former’s official residence in Baluwatar on Saturday.

It has been learnt that the meeting would dwell on the implementation of the nine-point agreement signed between the government and Dr KC recently.

Earlier, though PM Oli and Dr KC are scheduled to hold a one-on-meeting, it could not happen due to busy scheduled of the Prime Minister.

Senior orthopedic surgeonat the Maharajgunj-based Tribhuvan University Teaching Hospital (TUTH) Dr KC began his 15th hunger strike from Jumla on June 30 demanding reforms in medical education sector.

The crusader ended his hunger strike after signing a nine-point agreement with the government on July 26, 27 days after he resorted to his 15th fast-unto-death.

He broke his fast-unto-death after the government agreed to his major demand of putting a ban on opening a new medical college in Kathmandu Valley for 10 years. That was the longest hunger strike of the anti-corruption crusader, who had already held a series of hunger strikes before, demanding reforms in country's medical education and profession.
