DHARAN: Junior doctors, who have been agitating at the BP Koirala Institute of Health and Sciences, have intensified their protest programmes today by halting work at the emergency ward, ICU and CCU.
Citing management’s failure to address their demands, they had padlocked the offices of Vice-chancellor, director and others for an indefinite period yesterday. As many as 246 junior doctors are taking part in what they call ‘indefinite agitation’.
Dr Kumbhraj Joshi, Junior Resident Welfare Society Vice-chairman, warned of not returning to their work unless their demands are addressed. He went on to say that they had to intensify their agitation after the management showed reluctance to address their demands at yesterday and today’s meeting.
The doctors’ demands include revocation of the increased education fee and action against the people involved in the disputed examinations of MD, MS and MDS last year, among others.
