This is NOT ubelievable in a country - where conditions in govt. hospitals across the country are apalling to say the least.

Dear Health Minister : Ramadoss - Sleeping Or Playing petty political games?

The World Health Organization norms state that there should be one doctor per 2,500 people, India has one doctor per 1000 people, with Maharashtra one doctor per 1100 people and Mumbai with one doctor per 700 people.

Yet, our government hospitals are one of the worst in the world ?

In India it is the privilege of every health minister to start a medical college in his/her constituency. Just like the first thing that the Railway Minister does is to start new trains to his/her constituency.

What a shame. Quality NOT Quantity - is what we need.
