Kathmandu, July 13 : Leader of Communist Party of Nepal, Som Prasad Pande, has said the government needs to address legitimate demands of the agitating Dr KC and revise some others.
During an interaction organized by Reporters’ Club in the capital city on Friday, leader Pande said government has continuously urged Dr KC to stop fast-unto-death and begin dialogue.

On the occasion, Nepali Congress leader Min Bishwokarma said NC had moral support to Dr KC’s protest. However, if the government brings the bill on medical education in a revised form, the party won’t tolerate it, he warned.
Leader of Rastriya Janata Party Nepal, Laxman Lal Karna, viewed that government must save Dr KC’s life by holding talks to him by reaching Jumla.
Chairman of Nepal Medical Association, Dr Muktiram Shrestha, said health condition of agitating Dr KC was deteriorating day by day, so government needs to be serious and sensitive to address his demands.
He reminded that the Prime Minister was made aware on this matter. “If the government wants to hold dialogue with Dr KC, the Association would do mediation,” he informed.
