Kathmandu, Nepal: Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli has assured the medical activist Dr Govinda KC that the nine point deal inked to end the latter’s hunger strike would be implemented without further delay. 

The need for another hunger strike would not arise, Prime Minister Oli said during a meeting held at the former’s official residence in Baluwatar while responding to the concerns of the Dr. KC.

During the about two hours long meeting,  Dr KC reiterated that he would go on another fast unto death if the government fails to implement the recent agreement. Prime Minister Oli had invited Oli to hold discussion over the issue of implementing the nine point agreement. 

The government has agreed to amend 22 provisions of the Medical Education Bill in accordance with Dr KC’s demands. But nothing progress is made yet triggering a fear that the government would backtrack from its commitment to implement the recent nine point agreement.
