36 doctors arrested on fake credential charge

Gorkha Post



KATHMANDU — The Central Bureau of Investigation (CIB) of Nepal Police has so far arrested 36 medical doctors practising at various healing centers and facilities from 10 districts on the charge of using fake academic certificates for medical studies.

The CIB had launched the Operation Quack a few months ago to crack down on medical professionals who had allegedly obtained medical degrees and Nepal Medical Council licences by using fake academic credentials.

In the second phase of the ‘Operation Quack’ launched by the CIB with active participation of the Nepal Medical Council and Higher Secondary Education Board for the past four months, the police arrested 36 doctors — 13 from Kathmandu, two from Lalitpur, one in Jhapa, one in Sunsari, three in Morang, two in Dhanusha, nine in Parsa, three in Chitwan, one in Kaski and one in Dang. Of them six are females.

According to preparatory investigation by CIB, the doctors were found to have used fake intermediate or +2 certificates for abroad medical studies mainly in India.

CIB said the intermediate or +2 certificates of 35 of the 36 doctors are from Patna, India.

The Nepal Medical Council and the Higher Secondary Education Board have been assisting police to carry out the operations.

Meanwhile, Nepal Medical Council (NMC), the regulatory body for all medical doctors, has started investigations into the educational certificates of all 16,000 doctors to whom it has provided practicing licenses so far.

New govt likely to have 18 ministers

Gorkha Post



KATHMANDU — The new government is likely to have 15 to 18 ministries in total as Prime mInister KP Sharma Oli is preparing to give his cabinet a full shape.

As per discussion between Prime Minister Oli and CPN-Maoist Centre Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal, the government may include Madhes-based parties to make the government inclusive and have two-thirds majority in the Parliament.

According to Article 76 (9) of the constitution, the number of ministers cannot exceed 25 in the federal Cabinet. With the new constitution limiting the size of Council of Ministers to 25, the new governing team could be limited to 18 members including three state ministers. A formal decision on the matter is yet to be taken.

Speaking at a program organised in Kathmandu on Tuesday, UML leader Pradeep said: “Cabinet expansion is likely to take place on Wednesday. A few Maoist ministers will be joining the Oli government.”

“Our taskforce has recommended that the government form a 15-member Cabinet. Some of the ministries will be integrated and others scrapped.”

Ishwor Pokhrel, Pradeep Gyawali, Rabindra Adhikari, Raghubir Mahaseth, Bhanu Bhakta Dhakal and Padma Aryal are the probable ministerial candidates from the UML.

Like3wise, Maoist chair Dahal and senior CPN-MC leaders Narayan Kaji Shrestha and Ram Bahadur Thapa have been given the responsibility of selecting ministers from their party.

Probable ministerial candidates from the Maoist Centre include Ram Bahadur Thapa, Matrika Yadav, Pampha Bhusal, Devendra Poudel, Lekhraj Bhatta, Chakrapani Khanal, Pun, Girirajmani Pokhrel and Dev Gurung, according to the sources.

Thapa may lead the CPN-MC in the government as deputy prime minister. Yadav is being considered for appointment since he represents Madhes, Bhusal as a woman while Poudel is one of the leaders who joined the party lately. Poudel had left the Baburam Bhattarai-led Naya Shakti Party to join the Maoist Centre just ahead of unification talks with the UML.

Leaders involved in discussions said the Maoist Centre could appoint up to eight ministers if the Cabinet size does not exceed 18.
