Govinda KC sus­pends strike

People's Review - - NEWS - By Our Re­porter

Dr. Govinda KC sus­pended his fast-unto-death on the 23rd day Tues­day. How­ever, no sign was inked to end his strike, nei­ther did he take juice be­fore end­ing his strike.

He de­cided to sus­pend the hunger strike cit­ing the nat­u­ral calami­ties trig­gered by heavy mon­soon rains across the na­tion. He halted his strike by or­gan­is­ing a press meet on the premises of the Trib­hu­van Univer­sity Teach­ing Hos­pi­tal, Ma­hara­j­gunj. "All peo­ple through­out the coun­try are in pains due to the dam­ages caused to them by floods and land­slides and I feel it is ap­pro­pri­ate time to con­tinue my strike,” Dr KC said af­ter end­ing his strike this evening. Dr. KC said he would go to flood hit ar­eas and ex­am­ine the health of the af­fected peo­ple and dis­trib­ute them medicines. He had staged the hunger strike de­mand­ing en­dorse­ment of the Health Pro­fes­sion­als Ed­u­ca­tion Bill as per the spirit of the Math­ema re­port and the ear­lier agree­ments reached be­tween him and the gov­ern­ment. How­ever, the UML lead­ers, es­pe­cially those who had in­vested in the Manamo­han Med­i­cal Col­lege tried their best to ig­nore and un­der­mine Dr KC strike, which is likely coun­ter­pro­duc­tive for the party in the provin­cial and fed­eral elec­tions, es­pe­cially in the Kath­mandu Val­ley.
