Minister for Education, Science and Technology Giriraj Mani Pokharel says the government is ready to include demands and suggestions raised by medical education reform activist Dr Govinda KC in the new medical education law.
Dr KC has been staging a fast-unto-death for past 25 days demanding a new medical education law as per recommendations of a panel led by educationist Kedar Bhakta Mathema. He has been demanding that the government do not change any provision of the erstwhile Medical Education Ordinance while formulating the new law.
But, Minister says the government made ‘slight revisions’ on the provisions of the ordinance.
Speaking at a function organised in Rajbiraj of Saptari today, the Minister also maintained that police nominally used force while taking Dr KC to Kathmandu last week, but media blew it out of proportion.
“Media have written news so as to create illusions,” he said, “All incidents that happened in Jumla have not been covered.”
