Fasting doc’s health ‘critical’
Jul 15, 2018-
The Karnali Academy of Health Sciences (KAHS) said that the health condition of Dr Govinda KC became critical on Saturday.
The surgeon on indefinite hunger strike has not allowed doctors to give him medical treatment since Friday. KAHS Medical Director Dr Pujan Rokaya said Dr KC is losing consciousness repeatedly since Friday evening.
Kishor KC, a relative of Dr KC said the government continues to ignore him and refuses to hold talks. Meanwhile, a team of Nepali Congress and Nepal Students Union reached Jumla to express solidarity with Dr KC and the demands raised by him.
Dr KC launched his 15th hunger strike on June 30 seeking reforms in the country’s medical education sector. Dr KC has been staging his fast at KAHS demanding infrastructure and human resource to facilitate the institution to run MBBS classes. He has also demanded the Parliament to immediately pass the bill to replace the Medical Education Ordinance. The Tribhuvan University Teaching Hospital professor has pressed the government to establish medical colleges in Doti and Udaypur districts. (PR)
