Dr KC also developed throat and lungs infection, low blood sugar and weakening immunity power after continuing long hunger strikes on multiple occasions.

Doctors said that Dr, KC should be kept in Intensive Care Unit, but there is no ICU in Ilam.
The government seems indifference to KC’s hunger strike as during his previous strike. However, when his health gets worsens and the medics take to the street leaving works, the government has no option but to address his demands.
