Medical Education Struggle Campaign has demanded the government to take strict action against corruption in medical institutions and hospitals.
The campaign is led by Prakash Chand, son of Netra Bikram Chand ‘Biplab’, who also leads the outlawed Communist Party of Nepal. Prakash requested the government not to relate his mission with the political ideology of his father.
Prakash said that the government is allowing medical institutions to charge thousands of rupees from elites, excluding under-privileged ones from services.
He has demanded that the government should soon come up with policies of minimum salaries to all types of medical professionals. Prakash is working as an intern after completing his MBBS degree from Chitwan Medical College. He has demanded the same standard of medical education in all medical institutions to bring uniformity in medical education.
