Solve the Problem From Dialogue
Our serious attention has been drawn over the news published on a deteriorating health condition of Dr. Govinda KC who is staging a hunger strike in Ilam from January 9 with a six-points demand including the issuance of Medical Education Bill as per Mathema Commission report.
He started his first hunger strike with one-point demand in 2012, July 5 and this is his 16th hunger strike. He has been complaining government of not implementing the agreement made in each hunger strike. The appropriate way of solving problem is through dialogue.
We would like to draw an attention of the government and Dr KC to solve the problem through a meaningful dialogue and agreement so that series of such hunger strike do not repeat in future.
