Dr Govinda KC, who has been waging a battle for reform of medical education, has said he will now fight against corruption in the judiciary.
Stating that the judiciary is also dancing to the tune of mafia like the legislature and executive, he added his next battle will be against the leadership of judiciary.
Dr KC’s comments have come on a day when it has been revealed that the Supreme Court (SC) has ordered the Tribhuvan University (TU) to not immediately revoke the affiliation given to Kathmandu National Medical College.
A single bench of Justice Dambar Bahadur Shahi hearing the writ filed by promoter of the medical college Jainuddin Ansari on October 17 had issued an interim order to that regard.
The executive council of TU on September 6 had revoked the affiliation given to Kathmandu National Medical College after a three-member monitoring team formed by the council found that the medical college did not meet any standard.
The TU revoked the affiliation after the monitoring team submitted its report to the council stating that the medical college did not meet any standard and the hospital was operated illegally.
The TU executive council on July 27 had provided affiliation to the medical college. The act of providing affiliation to a desolate hospital, that had not met any standard and did not even have permission from the Health Ministry, had invited widespread criticism. The executive council had put affiliation on hold on September 2 following the widespread criticism, and had formed a three-member monitoring team.
