KATHMANDU, Aug, 6: Nepal Students Union, the sister wing of Nepali Congress, leaders Ganesh Sapkota and Ratnahari Dhungel have been staging a fast-unto-death for the last eight days demanding correction in the representatives selection for the convention.
Student leaders Sapkota and Dhungel have been hospitalized at Bagbazaar-based Kathmandu Model Hospital after their health condition deteriorated.
They have been transferred to Kathmandu Model Hospital from Sanepa and are now undergoing treatment at the emergency ward of the hospital.
Former central member of the NSU Sapkota and Dhungel were staging the hunger strike at the NC Central Party headquarters in Sanepa since last Saturday.
The hunger strike has piled pressure on NC President Sher Bahadur Deuba after their health condition is deteriorating.
