Nepal Medical Association (NMA) has given 72 hours ultimatum to pressure the government to address the demands of agitating doctors working in the state-run hospitals across the country through a talk.
NMA, an umbrella organization of medical doctors, in a press meeting on Thursday after holding discussion with stakeholders, announced that they would intensify the protest if the government failed to concern the demand of the doctors.
The association also told doctors working in both government and private health sectors to get prepared for stern protest programmes.
A thousands of people throughout the country has been deprived of health services in the government hospitals for the last seven days as the Government Doctors Association of Nepal (GODAN) have declared an indefinite protest by boycotting OPD services except for emergency.
The doctors have long been demanding for the amendment in the Civil Service Adjustment Bill which will keep them under the jurisdiction of federal government.
