Nepal Workers and Peasants Party Chair Narayan Man Bijukchhe has accused the medical mafia of preventing Bhaktapur municipality from getting permission to upgrade Khwopa College into a university and running medical classes there.
While inaugurating the 12th assembly of Bhaktapur Municipality here today, the leader said the municipality had proposed to the government to grant the status of university to the college and allow it to introduce MBSS classes at a very reasonable price.
"But our plan to ensure MBBS programme within the locality got aborted due to the medical mafia," he said, adding that medical mafias were active in making sure that the government does not accept the proposal.
He took time to say that the nation and people were suffering due to the dominance of those leaders who have no idea about the country's needs. "Those in power are ignorant about nation's geography, conditions and history."
