Politicians are right

Mr Sarbjit Dhaliwal writes in the Tribune “Have you seen any politician getting himself treated in a government-run primary health centre or in a civil hospital at the district or divisional level? 

Genuine question.

It is true that “Most politicians of Punjab have their “kothis” in Chandigarh or in other well-known cities such as Ludhiana, Jalandhar, Amritsar and Patiala having good quality private, convent schools”.

Further “politicians and bureaucrats at a personal level have already rejected the public delivery systems comprising government schools, civil hospitals and public transport and they opt for other better alternatives for which they have the financial means to utilise”.

The real question comes where is the choice for poor people who are now forced to chose only bad governments services in schools, education etc.
