Vice President Venkaiah Naidu paid homage to Former President of India, scholar and philosopher, Dr Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan on Teachers’ Day on Sunday.

He also paid his respects to all his teachers, who mould and shaped his career. Speaking at the 11th Annual Medical Teachers’ Day Awards event in Hyderabad today, the Vice President said, serving in rural areas should be made mandatory for young doctors in the government sector before giving them the first promotion. Mr Naidu said, three-to-five years of service in the rural areas should be made essential for young doctors as 60 per cent of the country’s population lives in the villages. He said, the COVID-19 pandemic has accentuated the need for better health infrastructure and advised the State Governments to bestow special attention to this aspect.

Appreciating the government’s plan to establish at least one medical college in each district, the Vice President pointed out that the urban-rural ratio of doctors was highly skewed with more medical professionals opting to work in urban areas. Mr Naidu said, it was important to ensure that medical students imbibe and practise high ethical and moral standards.

Earlier, the Vice President presented the Life-Time Achievement Award to well-known cardiologist and President of Public Health Foundation of India, Dr. K. Srinath Reddy and others, including Dr. Devi Shetty.

Telangana Home Minister Mohammed Mahmood Ali and others were present at the event,
Meanwhile, several programmes were held across Telangana today on the occasion of Teachers’ Day. At an event in Hyderabad, State Education minister Sabita Indra Reddy felicitated Teachers on the occasion. She called upon teachers to put efforts for the development of education in the State which has been affected by Covid-19. She also gave away Best Teachers Awards on the occasion.
