CM Yogi said that India’s traditional medical system has outperformed all others in the past nine years
Meerut : Indian traditional medicine is poised to make a significant leap and spread throughout the world as a result of the efforts of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who for the first time established the Ministry of AYUSH to promote conventional medical practices such as Ayurveda, Yoga, Homeopathy, Unani, and Naturopathy, said Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.
Speaking at the inauguration of ‘Akhil Bharatiya Ayurveda Mahasammelan and Pradeshik Ayurveda Sammelan’ at Chaudhary Charan Singh University, Meerut, the CM said, “Since 2016, the world has been celebrating June 21 as International Yoga Day. Yoga connects the entire globe, including every nation, province, the outcomes of PM’s attempts to introduce the world to this Indian tradition and to promote Ayurveda are in front of us.”
During this, the ODOP exhibition was also inaugurated in the presence of Vice President Jagdeep Dhankhar, Governor Anandi Ben Patel, and Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.
Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said that this conference is getting the visiting doctors ready for a new flight. “Today, where this conference is being held, many ayurvedic specialists have accomplished a lot in unusual and even circumstances. In particular, the work done by Vaidya Ramshay Kaushik, Vaidya Haridant, Krishna Lal Vajpayee, Vaidya Murari Lal Sharma, Pashupati Nath, and Vishnu Dutt Sharma to expand the system of AYUSH through Ayurveda in the entire region is highly commended. Hakim Saifuddin, an Unani physician and recipient of the Padma Award, was born and raised in Meerut.”
The CM continued by saying that during the three-day conference, discussions on various Ayurvedic disciplines would take place here. By integrating Ayurveda with Yoga, Naturopathy, and Health and Wellness Centers through the PM’s campaign, it can become an excellence center for health tourism.
“Since the Ministry of AYUSH was established nine years ago, the Prime Minister has increased the programs to support India’s traditional medical system. As a result, 3959 AYUSH hospitals, including 2110 Ayurvedic, 1584 Homeopathic, and 254 Unani hospitals, are currently operational in the state of Uttar Pradesh.”
He further said: “Through 11 Integrated AYUSH Hospitals of 50 beds, we are working towards achieving the goal of wellness in different areas. In the state of Uttar Pradesh, there are 105 AYUSH colleges, of which 79 are dedicated to Ayurveda, 15 to Unani, and 11 to Homeopathy. UP has also previously operated Ayush University. The state government is devoted to supporting these conventional medical practices and works tirelessly in this direction.”
The CM claimed that 100 BAMS students were invited to his house two years ago and meetings were held. “I questioned him on his decision to specialize in Ayurveda as a medical field. 94 students admitted that they wanted to study allopathy but couldn’t get in elsewhere, so they came here. 4 of them said that they were interested in Ayurveda. While two of them said that their parents are experts in it, so they joined it.”
The CM stressed that everyone had acknowledged the value of Ayurveda during Covid-19 and added, “If BAMS doctors want, they can run the health and wellness center well by integrating it with yoga and naturopathy. By establishing an FPO for “Annadata” farmers and cultivating medicinal plants, BAMS doctors can significantly increase the income of thousands of farmers. The degree is one, but there are many uses.
Stating that UP is the land of Ayurveda, the CM said, “It is the land of Lord Dhanvantari, the father of Ayurveda who used to treat both the gods and demons. Ayurveda will touch new heights as a result of the efforts of the double engine government.”
CM Yogi also congratulated Chaudhary Charan Singh University on receiving A++ grading in the NAAC evaluation.
