Do NRIs deserve an exclusive medical college?

Prabhudev of Austin, Texas, in a letter to the editor of The Hindu:

“The Karnataka government wants to invest Rs 500 crore for a state-of-the-art medical college targeting NRIs. When did the people elect a government so they can provide state-of-the-art facility for foreign nationals or residents with no apparent benefits to the population that elected it?

“The result is inflation and cannibalisation of faculty from other medical schools. What a disgrace! They are equating medical education to firms that export IT services. The Karnataka government should focus on improving facilities that benefit the local population.”
