While this is nothing new, it does not reflect well on the Indian healthcare system. I wonder what kind of surgery she needs that she had to leave India!
Now while she is gone, the Twindian netizens seem to have gone into a frenzy and hence has led to AIIMS being a trending topic on Twitter right now!
A lot of dissent is rising amongst the aam junta who wonder why what is good (not just good, AIIMS is probably the best) for us, is not good enough for the people who claim to represent us.
In my opinion, this is maintaining some sort of double standards. While people may claim that I maybe making a mountain out of a mole hill and Ms Gandhi is well within her rights to seek treatment outside for her ailments, all I am saying is that this is a matter of principle. I would have said the same thing if any prominent Indian politician took this decision. Irrespective of political affiliation.
I am, as of now, a rather politically neutral person and I have no political bias towards any segment. Seeing how India is, in general, considered to be a country on the rise, I think these kinds of actions send out the wrong indications globally.
If Ms. Gandhi cannot rely on us, how can we, in the spirit of reciprocity, rely on her? I seriously cannot believe that the one time an Indian medical institute is making the trends rounds on twitter is when it is being, in general, shamed by the ordinary people out there…
