Jain demands constitution of Ayurvedic Board for Chandigarh

Chandigarh Oct 28 : Bharatiya Janata Party national executive member Satya Pal Jain, a former MP, today urged the Central Government to constitute a separate and independent Ayurvedic Board for the Union Territory of Chandigarh as has been done in the case of almost all other states.
He also urged the Government to keep the ongoing campaign of criminally prosecuting various Ayurvedic doctors and Registered Medical Practioners (RMPs) who are practicing in various parts of the city, especially in villages and slum areas, in abeyance till then. ...
Mr Jain urged the Government to immediately stop this campaign of criminally prosecuting these doctors and if there are any doubts about their qualifying degrees, the matter be amicably sorted out by mutual dialogue. He said that if an independent Ayurvedic Board is constituted, it can remove all doubts about it and can find a permanent solution to this problem.
Mr Jain met the the Health Secretary of Chandigarh Union Territory along with a delegation of Ayurvedic and RMP doctors on this issue a few days back. He has written a letter about it to the Administration of Chandigarh and sent a copy of that letter to the Union Home Minister for necessary action.
