Minister joins issue with Ramadoss

Special Correspondent

CHENNAI: The Tamil Nadu Government has no second opinion on the need for doctors serving in rural areas, Health Minister M.R. K. Panneerselvam said here on Wednesday.

Joining issue with the Pattali Makkal Katchi founder S. Ramadoss on the issue of medical students’ strike, he said in response to the students’ demand not to extend the duration of the MBBS course to six and a half years, Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi had told them that he would take up the issue with the Centre.

He had only facilitated the end of the students’ agitation by assuring them that he would write to the Prime Minister and the Union Health Minister.

Mr. Panneerselvam denied that he or his predecessor K.K.S.S.R. Ramachandran had given their consent in writing to the proposal on mandatory rural service.
