National Medical College affiliation ‘put on hold’
Sep 3, 2017-
The Tribhuvan University has decided to put the decision of granting affiliation to Kathmandu National Medical College “on hold”. Issuing a statement on Saturday evening, the TU said the decision to grant affiliation to Kathmandu National Medical College “will not be implemented for now”. The TU move of granting affiliation to the controversial medical college based in Ghattekulo had drawn widespread criticism. During the Post’s recent visit to the medical college, which is set up in a residential apartment, it had found neither the doctors nor the patients at the facility. The TU granted affiliation to the medical college on August 27, on the fourth day of Dr Govinda KC’s 11th fast-unto-death demanding that no new medical colleges should be allowed in Kathmandu Valley for the next 10 years. Meanwhile, Dr KC has warned of launching another hunger strike.
