Set up Ayurvedic Board for UT: Jain

Times of Chandigarh
Set up Ayurvedic Board for UT: Satyapal JainCHANDIGARH: Former MP and senior BJP leader Satya Pal Jain has urged the Centre to constitute a separate and independent Ayurvedic Board for the UT as has been done in almost all other states, and keep the ongoing campaign of criminally prosecuting the various ayurvedic and RMP doctors, practising in various parts of the city, especially in villages and slums, in abeyance, till then.
In a statement issued on Wednesday, the BJP leader said that the Congress-led Central government had not been able to provide either the government dispensaries or the government doctors in various villages, colonies and other such areas of the city, which were overwhelmingly inhabited by poor and downtrodden section of society.
He said that because of this, it was the hundreds of ayurvedic and RMP doctors who were providing the minimum medical facilities to these poor people in those areas.
He further said that for the last few months, the government was insulting and humiliating these doctors by arresting them, because of which these doctors had been forced to shut down their shops, which in turn was affecting the medical assistance to the poor and needy people.
