    Best gratitude to Bihar Government for giving equal status to AYUSH DOCTORS.It is an appropriate decision.Other state govt.should take same cabinet decision to give integrated health facilities to the people.

  2. Great initiative by Bihar Govt which will become precedence for other States and AYUSH ministry, this will remove discrimination. Earlier also Central Council of Homeopathy (CCH) had passed the resolution, later adopted by Maharashtra Council of Homeopathy, but it remained only on paper and homeopathic teachers\’ pay did not change on the pretext that teachers are from private colleges. To uplift standard of education in streams of AYUSH, AYUSH must take this point of \’standardised and equal pay\’ for granting affiliation of education institutions and monitor exploitations and compromises in quality education. Ultimately, it\’s a matter of Nation\’s Health.

  3. let Lallu and family members, Nitish and his team be treated by Ayush Doctors Only …!!! Jai Hind !!!

  4. People should have sense. Ministers go to U.S. , aiims and corporate hospitals for evidence-based treatment of cancer kidney problems, etc., but misguide poor people to get unscientific treatment.

  5. Govt itself deteriorating it\’s standard of health care delivery system….
