Kathmandu, July 11
Minister of State for Health and Population Padma Kumari Aryal says the government is ready to meet demands put forth by medical education reform activist Dr Govinda KC.
Demanding that the government formulate and implement a new medical education law in line with the report of educationist Kedar Bhakta Mathema-led panel, Dr KC is on a fast-unt0-death in Jumla of Karnali for past two weeks.
Whereas Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli and Minister for Education, Science and Technology Giriraj Mani Pokharel have reportedly stated that the government could not address some key demands of the veteran orthopaedic surgeon, Minister Aryal said at an interaction in Kathmandu that the government was serious about the demands.
The leader of Prime Minister and Education Minister’s Nepal Communist Party, however, maintained that some of his demands were controversial and Dr KC should also be flexible for the resolution.
In another context, she said the government would do everything possible to save Dr KC’s life.
