Doctors and nurses are not in position, sub standard medicines are being doled out, patients are crowded on beds and floors, and many ICUs have no equipment.
Three and a half years down the line, Modi sarkar has betrayed this trust on all counts. At the central govt. level and at the state level where the BJP is in power in many states, charges of corruption are flying thick and fast.
