Those attacking doctors will face action: PM Prachanda

Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ has said those who resort to attacking doctors would face action. Receiving a memorandum from the Nepal Medical Association (NMA) today, he made this commitment, said the NMA Vice President Dr. Prakash Budhathoki.

Anyone resorting to attacking health workers would be punished, he said quoting the PM. On the occasion, a delegation of the NMA led by its president Dr Anil Bikram Karki submitted a memorandum to PM Prachanda.

The memo demands action against people attacking doctors and health workers as per the Act on the Safety and Security of Health Workers and Health Institutions (First Amendment).

The NMA condemned the attack and demanded the identification and booking of the attacker(s).
