Justice missing from Judiciary: Dr KC

KATHMANDU: Senior orthopaedic surgeon at the the Tribhuvan University Teaching Hospital Dr Govinda KC, who is on a strike demanding reforms in the medical education sector, has lamented over what he called the 'disappearance of justice from the judiciary'.

He also warned of launching a protest as a civilian to retain judiciary's dignity. Dr KC was talking to mediapersons at the TUTH where he has been on a fast-unto-death for the eight days.

This is the 13th time that Dr KC has been on a strike demanding reforms in medical sector.

"If judiciary is without justice, where will the ordinary people go to seek justice"? It is the responsibility of all Nepalis to fight against this situation," he said.

Meanwhile, he expressed discontent over the release of Director General of Nepal Oil Corporation Gopal Khadka accused of misappropriating millions of rupees in purchasing land for the Corporation. Dr KC also accused political parties and their leaders of corrupting states bodies.

He demanded that the Medical Education Bill be endorsed within October 21 before the term of the current Parliament expires.

No response to this effect has come in from the government side so far however, he said.
