Yey another example of the blatant misuse of power by politicians.

A two pence politician who is the union health minister just because of caste politics apparently had some ego hassles and ended up with a dislike for one of India's top doctors Dr P Venugopal; and got him sacked from the post of Director of India's premier health Institution - the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS).

As of last reports the matter is not finished yet...the high court has been moved, and there are wide spread protests and a doctors' strike against this decision.

Well, people will strike and make a hue and cry about it, but in a week the government will find a way out of the mess and eventually just do what it likes. Can we have some semblence of accountability from the people who (unfortunately) decide the direction in which the country moves ?
