Dr KC begins fast-unto-death for 11th time; TU appoints campus chief and asst deans at IOM

dr_govindaKathmandu / July 24: Senior orthopaedic surgeon at the Tribhuvan University Teaching Hospital Dr Govinda KC has begun his fast-unto-death on Monday for the eleventh time stating that the government failed to address his demands as promised earlier.

Organising a press meet at TUTH, Dr KC said that the 11th hunger strike was launched after the government failed to address his demands to bring reforms in the medical sector in the country.

The senior orthopaedic surgeon has demanded to immediately pass the Medical Education Act as per the recommendation made by Kedar Bhakta Mathema-led panel.

Similarly, Dr KC has also demanded to probe into the irregularities in the medical sector and give autonomy to the Institute of Medicine (IoM).

He, however, has assured that the hunger strike would not affect the teaching-learning activities and daily medical services at TUTH.
