KATHMANDU: After the lawmakers demanded additional time to study on the bill presented at the Parliamentary Committee on Women, Children, Senior Citizens and Social Welfare, the discussion on the bill has been postponed. 

The full meeting of the Committee on Thursday could not endorse the bill as lawmakers voiced for the study on the bill which was brought with amendment by the taskforce relating to national medical education bill-2073.
The taskforce made the amendment that the medical colleges which have begun hospital being equipped with infrastructures would be provided affiliation.
However, agitating Dr Govind KC has been insisting on not providing affiliation to the new medical colleges at least for ten years in the Kathmandu Valley.
The taskforce has further added that government would run a public teaching hospital at every province, informed taskforce member Jivan Pariyar.
Dr KC’s health deteriorating
Secretary at Health Ministry Dr Kiran Regmi has informed that the health condition of agitating Dr Govinda KC has deteriorated badly. He said, “Heart beat has increased and blood lost ingredient and is getting unnecessary elements. At such condition, he needs to be administered antibiotic, but he has not allowed.”
Dr Regmi warned that if the fast-onto-death is continued at such condition, Dr KC may face disability. RSS
