NCP to take measures for saving life
Jul 19, 2018-
An emergency secretariat meeting of the ruling Nepal Communist Party (NCP) on Wednesday decided to take steps necessary to save the life of Dr Govinda KC as his health condition has reached a “critical” stage due to a hunger strike for the last19 days.
The Jumla-based Karnali Academy of Health Sciences said in a statement that the protesting senior orthopaedic surgeon needs treatment at a Coronary Care Unit which the academy lacks.
Following the report, the NCP had called the emergency meeting at the initiative of NCP Co-chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal and senior leader Madhav Kumar Nepal.
According to party Spokesman Narayan Kaji Shrestha, the meeting decided to openly discuss all of the fasting surgeon’s demands.
At the meeting, the leaders stressed resolving the issue through compromise as Dahal and Nepal expressed serious concerns at the government’s activities concerning Dr KC that could tarnish the image of both the party and the government. (PR)
