The Nepali people living in United States of America voiced their concerns towards the deteriorating health condition of Dr Govinda KC.
The Non-Resident Nepali (NRN) people have expressed their solidarity with Dr KC’s agitation and urged the government to immediately address his demands.
Dr KC, a Professor of orthopaedics at the Tribhuvan University Teaching Hospital, has been staging fast-unto-death for the last ten days against the aberrations and anomalies in medical education sector of the country.
“The politicians including prime minister have introduced the trend of flying abroad for health checkups at the expenses of the state,” read the statement, “Whereas Dr KC have visited remote villages by spending his salary in order to provide health services.”
The US based Nepalis—Surendraraj Devkota, Ramesh Pant, Yuvraj Khati, Arjun Banjade, Rajendra Rawat, Tarun Poudyal, Suman Parajuli and Amod Pokhrel—made such demands in a press statement on Tuesday.
