Dr KC breaks fast After 16 Days


Dr Govinda KC, who had been staging fast- unto- death since the last 16 days at Tribhuvan University Teaching Hospital, ended his longest ever hunger strike on Monday by drinking juice offered by patients. Five- year- old orthopaedic patient from Sindhupalchowk Saroj Nepali, monk from Gorkha Chhowang Norbu Lama, Anita Devi Mahato, a patient from Siraha, and Dr Senendra Raj Uprety offered juice to Dr KC to end his fast- unto- death strike. Later, former chief secretary Leelamani Paudyal and parliamentarian Gagan Thapa also joined the programmed to break the fast- unto- death and jointly offered juice to Dr KC. After the four- point agreement between the government and Dr KC’s side on Sunday, Dr KC formally ended his eighth hunger strike on Monday.
