Dr Govinda KC to continue 14th hunger strike

KATHMANDU: Dr Govinda KC has issued a press statement on Thursday stating that he will continue his fast-unto-death.

Dr KC, who was released on a general date by the Supreme Court on the case of contempt of court on Wednesday, said that the hunger strike will continue until his demands are met. "I will continue my struggle until the remaining demands in the purification campaign of the medical education and judiciary are met," reads the statement.

Dr KC had begun his 14th fast-unto-death on Monday after the apex court decided to reinstate Dr Shashi Sharma as the Dean of TU, Institute of Medicine.
