    Why didn't you do so previously?You were making millions and millions because you didn't have sympathy towards poor people. Now suddenly, you are trying to become a "Vessanthra".Yours is a profit oriented organization. There is no difference between you and ALL the politicians in this country.

    Balla piduru kaneth na,Kana gonata deneth na. Let the GMOA doctors have sympathy on people by not charging for private practise, Let the tuition masters give free tuition, Let the lawyers represent us for free. Tell me whats free in todays world. As a private hospital NFTH is doing public work even for a day. I know how bad it can hurt you because more deaths mean success for your protest
