Kathmandu, November 27

Medical students who had launched a protest demanding that the institutions return them the fees they collected in addition to the ones allowed by the government say they will not accept a recent two-point deal signed between the government and the institutions.

Last night, the medical colleges had signed the agreement, agreeing to return the excess amount to first-year and second-year students of MBBS and BDS programmes. The students argue that the deal is incomplete as it excludes many other students who are in other years of the two programmes, and all students of the programmes like BSc Nursing, B Pharm, BPH and BMIT.

“We do not accept this agreement as it excludes the batch admitted in 2016/17, which started the protest,” says Sujan Kadariya, a spokesperson of the students’ struggle committee.

“There was a conspiracy to stop our protest in the name of talks and agreements,” he says, “Now we will intensify Kathmandu-centric protests.”
