Prof. Dr Jagadish Prasad Agrawal

Kathmandu, Nepal: Tribhuwan University (TU) has appointed Prof. Dr Jagadish Prasad Agrawal as the Dean of Institute of Medicine (IoM) on Saturday.
 
A meeting of the TU executive council held at the official residence of Prime Minister in Baluwatar on Saturday afternoon made the decision to appoint Agrawal as the IoM’s Dean. 
 
Newly appointed IoM Dean is the veteran neurologist at the Tribhuvan University Teaching Hospital (TUTH). He is also the senior doctor eligible to be appointed as the dean.
  
With the appointment of Dean at IoM, the major demand of agitating Dr Govinda KC, who had been staging a fast-unto-death since last 20 days, has been fulfilled even though he had forwarded six points demands related to the reforms in the medical sector including the resignation of IoM dean IP Singh. 
 
Sigh had resigned on Friday to pave the way to appoint another dean on the basis of seniority.  It is said that Dr KC would break his 10th fast-unto-death today.
