A proposal of serious public importance has been lodged in the Parliament today regarding the affiliation awarded to a Kathmandu-based new medical college against the proposed medical education bill and agreement signed with Prof Dr Govinda KC.
The proposal registered by lawmaker Gagan Kumar Thapa at the Legislature-Parliament Secretariat has been seconded by Lawmaker Shyam Kumar Shrestha (Kavre) and Rukmini Chaudhary.
The proposal has stated that people's future and right to receive quality health care services has been belittled. As public health has been undermined by giving affiliation to a medical college short of basic standards, the proposer has demanded the Parliament to take required steps for the course correction of the government and prevent complexities in the future.
It also states that quality health care would be seriously jeopardized from the products of such college that have neither the doctor, nor patient and infrastructure for quality health care services. The decision of the Tribhuvan University to grant affiliation was against the government's repeated commitments, he has said in the proposal adding that the House should stop such decision through intervention.
