Implement agreement: Dr KC Alliance
Aug 11, 2016-
The supporters of Dr Govinda KC, also known as Solidarity for Dr KC Alliance, have urged the newly-formed government under CPN (Maoist Centre) to implement the agreements reached with the doctor.
Dr KC, who has been demanding major reforms in the country’s medical education sector, ended his eighth hunger strike on July 25 after the previous government, led by KP Sharma Oli of CPN-UML, issued a written commitment to address the doctor’s demands.
The alliance issued a statement on Wednesday, reminding the new government under the premiership of Pushpa Kamal Dahal to adhere to the commitment made by the previous government.
The statement has also questioned the intention of some senior political party leaders, who despite evidences of wrongdoing and interference by Commission for Investigation of Abuse of Authority’s Chief Commissioner Lok Man Singh Karki in the medical education sector, are defending him. One of the demands of Dr KC is impeaching Karki. The alliance has also urged the government to immediately initiate the process to acquire Manmohan Memorial Institute of Health Sciences, as agreed.
