KATHMANDU, July 23: Worried by the news reports about the deteriorating health condition of Dr Govinda KC, cine artists reached the Tribhuvan University Teaching Hospital (TUTH) to draw the attention of the government to the just demands of Dr KC, whose fast-unto-death entered its 13th day on Friday.
"Government should fulfill the demands of Dr KC as he has been staging the hunger strike for the rights of all Nepalese people," actor Keki Adhikari said. Adhikari had reached the TUTH on Friday to express solidarity to the cause of Dr KC.
She has urged everyone to come forward to save the life of Dr KC and use the power of social sites to put pressure on the government and the lawmakers to fulfill the demands put forward by him.
"We can at least give some moments of our lives to the man who has been risking his own life for a just cause," said Adhikari.
Another actor, Rekha Thapa, too, urged all to express solidarity to the cause of Dr KC. She said that it is the responsibility of all to support Dr KC because he has been fighting to reform the existing health care system, which is riddled with irregularities.
"People are fearful of death. But Dr KC has been willingly risking his life for us," said Thapa. She has requested Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli to heed Dr KC's demands.
Like Thapa and Adhikari, other artists have also expressed solidarity to Dr KC's cause.
