Angered by Dean appointment, Dr KC begins strike again

Tribhuvan University Teaching Hospital’s senior orthopaedic surgeon Dr Govinda KC on Sunday began yet another fast-unto-death after the TU did not pay any heed to his ultimatum.

Issuing a press statement an hour before beginning the strike, he said achievements he gained from previous strikes would be lost if he stayed silent.

Dr KC of late had been demanding that the TU appoint the Institute of Medicine Dean on the basis of seniority, but not the political power sharing.

Prof Dr Keshab Prasad Singh had been appointed the Dean yesterday, but the veteran surgeon said the decision was not made on the basis of seniority.
