Nepali Congress registering proposal of public significance to save Dr KC

The main opposition party, Nepali Congress, will table a proposal of urgent public significance with a request to address demands and save the life of Dr Govinda KC at the meeting of House of Representatives on Friday.

The meeting is scheduled for 1:00 pm today.

The proposal of urgent public significance is being taken to the House meeting this afternoon, informed Nepali Congress Chief Whip Bal Krishna Khand.

The party has openly extended its support to Dr KC this time as the medical education reform activist has demanded that the government do not change any provisions of the Medical Education Ordinance as it introduces a new bill and the ordinance was issued by previous Congress-led government.

Dr KC is on a hunger strike at the Karnali Academy of Health Sciences in Jumla for the past six days demanding that the government formulate a medical education law as per the report prepared by educationist Kedar Bhakta Mathema-led panel.

He has been admitted to the Academy’s hospital on Thursday after his health condition worsened. The Ministry of Health has sent an experts’ team for Dr KC. He, however, has refused to meet them until his demands were met. Instead, he says he is ready to die.

The main opposition had earlier decided to send its three lawmakers— Prakash Snehi, Dil Bandhu Shrestha and Rangamati Shahi— to inquire about Dr KC’s health condition and express solidarity with him.

Eight Nepali Congress leaders demand immediate local, provincial conventions 2 SHARES FacebookTwitterEmail Onlinekhabar Clockwise, from top left: Gagan Thapa, Chandra Bhandari, Dhana Raj Gurung, Guru Raj Ghimire, Ram Krishna Yadav, Kiran Yadav, Jeevan Pariyar and Pradeep Paudel Kathmandu, June 20 Whereas factional politics is at its peak in Nepali Congress, eight youth leaders of the party have demanded that the main opposition begin the process of electing new leadership immediately, claiming the current leadership is incapable of taking the party ahead effectively. As the party’s district presidents have gathered in Hetaunda of Makawanpur for a three-day meeting, the youth leaders–namely: Chandra Bhandari, Dhana Raj Gurung, Gagan Thapa, Jeevan Pariyar, Guru Raj Ghimire, Pradeep Paudel, Ram Krishna Yadav, and Kiran Yadav–have called them to press the party leadership for holding conventions of local and provincial level committees by the end of current Nepali year (mid-April 2019). They have argued that the 14th national general convention of the party must be organised in February-March 2020; therefore concluding conventions of lower committees should be an immediate priority as it also takes time. Otherwise, the party will lose next provincial and parliamentary elections, to be held in 2022, they have warned. The leaders have distributed a three-page letter to all participants of the meeting. “Do you think a strong opposition role is possible with current style, leadership and ideological confusion? No!” the letter reads, “Now, it is essential to finalise a new mission of the Congress so that its organisation can carry a new agenda for the new era. We also need to elect a new leadership capable for that.” If that happens, the party will prepare itself for upcoming local, provincial and federal parliamentary elections, according to them.
