KATHMANDU, July 10: Dr. Govinda KC, a senior orthopedic surgeon at the Institute of Medicine (IoM), has started fast-unto-death from Sunday demanding impeachment against Chief Commissioner at the Commission for the Investigation of Abuse of Authority (CIAA), Lokman Singh Karki among others.
It is the eighth hunger strike by the doctor.
Organizing a press meet at Tribhuvan University Teaching Hospital (TUTH), Dr. KC said that he will continue the fast-unto-death until his demands are addressed.
Earlier today, he had snubbed an invitation for talks by Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli.
Dr.KC has claimed that the CIAA chief Karki has been running parallel government while the political parties have been mere spectators to it.
He has also demanded to implement the agreements with the erstwhile government, recall the bill tabled at the parliament that turns Manmohan Medical College into an academy and establish at least one medical college in each of the seven provinces.
