It has been learned that Dr KC would break his 10th fast-unto-death today
Dr KC had started his latest hunger strike after the government failed to address his demands, although it had agreed to do so.
In the course of starting his 10th hunger strike, he had issued a six-point demand, including the sacking of TU Vice-chancellor Tirtha Khaniya and resignation of Prof Dr KP Singh
Dr Singh tendered his resignation on Friday to “save the life of Prof Dr Govinda KC’s life”.
