He wanted to create a mark as he was the union health minister, he should have banned multi nationals like COCO COLA ,had he been seriously concerned about the health hazards as well as depleting our dear resources also marketing of dangerous and proscribed drugs in INDIA by the MNC'S. Now , he left smoking ban high and dry . by resigning.

Not at all concerned. Infact, he is a total failure as a Health Minister because he has given so little concern to what he should be doing, taking care of the health concerns in the country. To start with, improving the state of health of our 'Primary Health Centres' which are the most important edifice of providing a good health care to the rural people. In many states, it is in terrible shape, mired in corruption, with hardly any facilities and even total absence of doctors as no one wants to serve in rural areas inspite of the bond that they sign when they study at Govt. expenditure.

He started off his high profile campaign with the AIIMS controversy. Once he was put on the mat by the Supreme Court, he turned his attention to other attention grabbing matters like smoking and now he has just stepped into the arena of drinking too. Another of those insipid ministers who is surviving there because those 5 to 6 MPs matter a lot in a shaky coalition.

I don't know why in India, we ...more
