Stop going abroad, serve for the country

Dehradun, Aug 4: Describing the medical profession as a mission to serve humanity, Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan, who visited the newly built AIIMS at Rishikesh, encouraged students to serve people of the country rather than going abroad after passing out from the premier institute.

"While interacting with students at AIIMS here, I asked them not to leave this country after they pass out as is the trend these days. I told them to stay back and use their expertise for the service of the people of the country.

"I also asked them to dedicate a part of their career to the service of people living in remote areas who are deprived of good medical facilities," he told reporters in Rishikesh.

"The NDA government at the Centre led by Narendra Modi wants to run the health schemes in the country like a national mission and keep them free from politics," he said while replying to a question.

"Health is central to the well-being of our people and we want the sector to remain free from all sorts of politics and run the health schemes like a national mission," Harsh Vardhan said.
