BJYM demands probe into working of Central Ayush Department

PTI, Hamirpur, May 11,2013

Alleging a “systematic campaign” to “fail” the Ayush system, alternative systems of medicines, youth wing of the BJP today demanded a thorough probe into the working of the department.

BJYM president Anurag Thakur demanded a thorough probe into the working of Central Ayush Department, which he claimed had become non-functional and the “funds allocated to the department for various activities are being surrendered every year.”

Thakur alleged that there was a powerful lobby having links with foreign drug manufacturers and suppliers, and are harming the cause of Ayush and not allowing it to function efficiently.

The MP said that a systematic campaign is underway to “fail” Ayush system which was less expensive and more adaptable in India.

He said that the main aim of the AYUSH was to propagate Ayurveda, Yoga, Naturopathy, Unani, Sidha, Sowa-Riga and Homeopathy and to promote the Indian system of medicines to the maximum.

However, the department has failed to achieve the stated objectives and there was sharp deterioration in the implementation on various ongoing schemes in various sectors and priority areas of the AYUSH.
