    Right now I am in a private hospital for my brother who is admitted for serious liver illness. I can easily sense how they are exploiting innocent patients in the name of best treatment. They hardly care for the patients to recover. What they ultimately want is treatment business to flourish at astronomically high price with out any fear for law of the land.
    I appeal to govt to please intervene in this matter and ensure equality of health (treatment)for every citizen in the country irrespective of pvt or public institution giving health services.
