CHITWAN, July 18: Scores of youth on Monday took the street of Narayangadh in the support of Dr Govinda KC, an orthopedic surgeon who has been staging a fast-onto-death in Kathmandu for the last nine days.
Blaming that the government has not shown any interest to address the demands put forth by Dr. KC, youth urged the government to address his demands at the earliest.
They chanted some slogan including “Save Dr. KC, Save Honesty and Morality”. Hundreds of youth were seen on the street of Lions Chowk of Narayangadh carrying placard with the message: 'Lawmakers fulfill the demands of Dr. KC'.
“The protest will continue until the demands put forth by Dr. KC are fulfilled,” coordinator of Prayash Nepal, Amar Ghimire, said, adding that lawmakers should not ignore issues related to health sector reforms.
Different groups of youths are planning to support Dr. KC by organizing protest programs in the various areas of Chitwan district on Tuesday too.
