  1. AYUSH is ASH. A noble laureate in chemistry said there is NO basis for homeopathic ?drugs. WHY waste public money up on these fellows. We don\’t bother to control vectors which are responsible for most of viral diseases . These AYUSH felows don\’t have knowledge of infectious diseases even then they talk of these diseases . They are copy cats of no shame. Bluffing the public about treatments for which there is no scientific proof . It is sheer waste of public money . The money can be spent on public health and hygiene .

  2. Dear Sir,

    There is already much happening in the public health and hygiene. If the national policy is talking about shortage of MBBS doctors and need to mainstream AYUSH doctors, why there is so much of negativity towards this? If AYUSH doctors practice Modern Medicine, then also, there is strong objection. Now, when the said institute is something to do with the Homoeopathy, still there is a huge resistance. Why there is so much of hatred towards Homoeopathy ? Let the policy makers decide money should be spent on what and where.
