BPKIHS protest ends after a month, services resumeThe services, except emergency, had remained closed for a month due to the strike.
Outpatient and other services resumed from Saturday evening at the Dharan-based BP Koirala Institute of Health Sciences after a six-point agreement between the administration and the agitators that included teachers, employees and doctors.
The services, except emergency, had remained closed for a month due to the strike.
They had halted work from January 14 demanding the authorities start the promotion process. On the other hand, the students had launched a relay hunger strike to press for regular teaching and learning activities.
As per the agreement, the postponed interviews will resume from February 23 and the promotion process will be completed as per the schedule. It has been agreed that the results would be published within a week after the interviews are completed.
Similarly, both sides have reached an agreement that the institute will not take punitive action against the doctors, teachers and employees involved in the protest, said Dr Seraj Ahmad Khan, chair of the Teacher’s Welfare Society.
