He can easily be described as a people’s prime minister. One of the first few words he said after his re-do by pass surgery was raising concern about the same type of care given to common man.

Heart ailments were once only rich man’s disease. Now everyone suffers from heart problems, blockages in the coronary arteries and these have to looked into urgently – but the common man cannot afford the high cost of surgeries, medicines and post operative care and so the common man dies a quiet death.

As wished by Dr.Manmohan Singh, each and every doctor should devote some time, money and energy to treat patients free of cost.

Just as DR. APJ Abdul Kalam opened the gates of Rashtrapati BHavan to the common man, Dr.Manmohan Singh has opened the gates of AIIMS to common man.

India is not a country which was born rich or had independence to grow as it wishes. On top of it the basic weakness of Indian gene in terms of corruption, lazyness and hypocracy which lead to the culmination of all undesirable effects. If possible do something to set it right instead of writting tons of new print about it.

As the head of the nation he had to go to the AIIMS. In case he had chosen to exercise his options it would have set a bad precedent. Even if we agree that AIIMS is a world class institute, don’t we need an AIIMS all over India? Just one won’t suffice.

A drafting of Doctors, Engineers and Commerce students for about 2-3 years. Public and security service to the nation.

I am not in favour of AIIMS like institutes in cities, what we need is hospitals in remote areas. In cities, people under BPL should get treatment from corporate hospitals and the govt. should pay for the treatment.

I am sick of govt. running businesses, be it airlines, telephone firms (BSNL, MTNL), etc. Privitize them and put that money in basic things like water, health, education etc.
