ILAM, Jan 12: The government has been indifferent toward Dr Govinda KC who has been staging hunger strike for the last four days at the district headquarters, Ilam.

The government representatives have not contacted him so far. “No government representatives have contacted me so far. I will not budge away from my decision,” campaigner Dharma Gautam quoted Dr KC as saying.

According to Gautam, Dr KC is fully determined to pile pressure on the government so as to bring out the National Medical Education Bill as agreed with him earlier. Dr KC started to stage hunger strike after The Education and Health Committee of the Legislature Parliament on Wednesday endorsed the bill without incorporating his demands.

The health condition of Dr KC is deteriorating day by day. He is frail and cannot even sit up since Saturday said Dr. Ram Krishna Acharya. Level of glucose and blood pressure is decreasing.

This is KC's 16th hunger strike.
