    What a shame the Government servents including the staff members try to avoid treatment from the so called Teaching( cheating) Medical colleges HOSPITALS with added titles like Institutions, research centres etc.I think the starting new medical colleges is MAINLY for the personal gain and promote one’s own CASTE COMMUNITY PEOPLE. It is criminal waste of public money. There is no mashing in creating nuisance / nonsense medical colleges. IT is to glorify with false propoganda and missuse the hard-earned money of taxpayers. It is maninly to give advantage of power, position and financial benefits to the dominant castes by unlawfull appointments.MOST OF DOCTORS SO CALLED TEACHING FACULTY MEMBERS DISAPPEAR TO THEIR PRIVATE PRACTICE SOON AFTER BIOMETRICS ATTENDANCE . IF INVESTIGATION IS DONE BY HONEST DEDICATED AGENCIES THE CROOKS WILL FIND THEIR WAY PRISON TO GIVE COMPANY TO OTHER CROOKS ALREADY TAKING ADVANTAGE IN BANGALORE CENTRAL JAIL. WHICH WAS IN NEWS RECENTLY.
