  1. AYUSH is ASH. Let them bring white paper on efficacy of the so called ayush system . With any kind of proof they r practicing or practicing modren medicine by back door entry . The same amount canbe spent for portable water, nutrition and other preventable health. The ministry is like white elephant , the officers should know what they r doing . Read and understand the biology ,physiology , pahalogy and relate where the ayush stand . These are permitted quacks . It is a shame all talk of medicine even with out the basic knowledge of human biology . It is a shame and sham .
