The hunger strike is carried on three different shifts, 6 AM to 1 PM, 1 PM to 7 PM and 7 PM to 7 AM. The members of Facebook group 'Darhi Gang' and 'Women's Room Reloaded' have also joined in for the cause. The involvement of youngsters supporting Dr Govinda KC has caught general people's eyes.
In the past, although the concerned authorities had pledged to address the genuine demands by inking the deal with Dr KC, after pressure from medical mafias the government has repeatedly failed to take necessary measures to address the demands.
