08 Jun Health minister shailaja made poser on the need for new medical colleges in each and every dist of the state. Perhaps this ministers mindset is very archaic and hence this sound byte. A healthy population is a must for every nation and one of the inputs for that is doctors service even if you hate the doctors. The child health access is very crucial. Modi saw this writing on the wall and hence retirement age of docs to sixty five..the only decent approach is to have the doc population ratio to be brought down. Hopefully the ministers come and go away but the health of the population cannot be considered negotiable. That a person is minister also requires some retraining and education. Remember the madras city had three medical colleges right from the days of free India. Reading history is always essential to dream a future. Without history there is no identity..yet again these guys donning the garb of ministers will keep on blurting sound bytes….good for them bad for the state and nation….
