Doctors go on strike ‘for creating pressure’
KATHMANDU, April 4: Doctors at the Tribhuvan University Teaching Hospital (TUTH), Maharajgunj, have launched protest programmes from today to pile pressure for the immediate appointment of officials at the hospital and the Tribhuvan University Institute of Medicine.
Doctors said they have been compelled to launch phase-wise protest programmes after the university officials including the Vice-chancellor neglected their repeated requests to appoint the officials.
Chairman of Nepal University Teachers’ Association of the Campus, Prof. Dr. Dinesh Binod Pokhrel said that five main posts including that of the Dean, three Assistant Deans and Campus Chief are lying vacant since long. RSS
