  2. INCLUSION of AYUSH is MUST!

    NOT INCLUDING AYUSH doctors is a signal of weak draft by policy makers.

  4. GOVERNMENT SHOULD STAY SILENT WHILE PRIVATE HEALTH SECTOR LOOT

  5. Govt has no right to thrust into the private sector .This shows that the Govt has no important work for the country to attend to ,only meddling into the area of private sector . Soliciting one person or the other it not the business of the Govt . Demonetization or GST we don\’t criticize .They should try to locate black money . Don\’t bother health in private otherwise the health of the country will deteriorate .
