Chennai: Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M
Karunanidhi on Thursday asked the medical fraternity to work with a
"humanitarian touch", saying money should not be the primary
consideration in this profession.

"You should not look at this just as a profession. You
should serve the people with a humanitarian touch and this
applies to all in the field of medicine," Karunanidhi said at
the 125th year celebrations of the government-run Kasturba
Maternity Hospital here.

Karunanidhi said medical professionals should work for
the welfare of the economically poor, and according to their
"conscience."

"A small mistake by anyone in this field could bring a
bad name to the entire profession as it directly serves the
people," he said.
