Over 21000 candidates were conferred with Degrees and Diplomas in the 33rd Convocation of The Tamil Nadu Dr. M.G.R Medical University today.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who addressed the Convocation, expressed happiness that more than 70 per cent of the candidates who received Degrees and Diplomas were women. He congratulated all the graduates and conveyed his special appreciation to the women candidates. He said it is always special to see women leading from the front in any field. 

The Prime Minister said the success of the students and the institution would have made the great MGR very happy. Recalling that MGR's governance was full of compassion towards the poor, Mr Modi said the subjects of healthcare, education and empowerment of women were dear to him. He said India is honoured to be working in the health sector for our Tamil sisters and brothers in Sri Lanka where MGR was born. Ambulance service financed by India is widely used by the Tamil community in Sri Lanka. He said these efforts in healthcare that too for the Tamil community would have made MGR very happy.

The Prime Minister said the Government is transforming the entire medical education and health sector and the National Medical Commission will rationalize the norms to set up new medical colleges, bring greater transparency and improve the quality and availability of Human Resources in this sector. 

The Prime Minister announced that the Government has permitted the establishment of 11 new medical colleges in those districts in Tamil Nadu which do not have a medical college and for these medical colleges, the Government of India would give more than Rs 2000 crore. 

The Prime Minister said, "Doctors are among the most respected professionals in our country and this respect has gone up even more after the pandemic. This respect is because people know the seriousness of your profession where many times, it is literally a life and death question for someone." He said to be serious and to look serious are two different things and requested the students to keep their sense of humour intact. He said this will also help them to cheer up their patients and keep their morale high.

Mr Modi also advised the students to focus on their health and fitness as they take care of the nation's health. He gave a call to the students to rise above self-interest and said doing so will make them fearless.
