Posted by Anup Baral September 10, 2016 :
Tribhuvan Universirty Teaching Hospital’s orthopaedic surgeon Dr Govinda KC, who is on his eighth fast-unto-death demanding reforms in Nepal’s education sector for last 15 days, may end his strike today. Dr Jiwan Kshetry, who was involved in negotiation with the government on behalf of Dr KC, said the veteran surgeon may end the strike today as the talks held throughout the day on Sunday were moving toward a positive conclusion. He, however, refused to give details of the negotiation, claiming he was absent in the talks today. Sources said the talks headed toward the solution as the government agreed to acquire physical property of the Man Mohan Health Science Academy for the National Academy of Medical Sciences. The Man Mohan Academy had remained a bone of contention between Dr KC and the government. It has been learned that the practising doctors and medical students, who had held talks with the government team on behalf of the fasting doctor, are convincing Dr KC to end the strike at the TUTH.
Former Chief Secretary Leela Mani Paudyal and educationist Kedar Bhakta Mathema are also at the hospital to convince Dr KC. Putting forth major four demands, Dr KC on July 10 had begun his hunger strike at the Tribhuvan University Teaching Hospital. KC has accused Karki of protecting various corrupt people in the medical education sector and argued that the CIAA chief breached his jurisdiction as he interfered in the Kathmandu University. He has also demanded impeachment motion against CIAA Commissioner Raj Narayan Pathak, arguing that he was also involved in activities against dignity of his position, in promoting irregularities in the medical education sector.
