Pharmacists are in no way inferior to any other medical faculty. Physicians, nurses, as well as other allied health care professionals play an important role in patient care.
This was said by the Chief Minister Professor (Dr.) Manik Saha while inaugurating the 12th World Pharmacists Day celebrations organized by the Regional Institute of Pharmaceutical Science and Technology (RIPSAT) in Agartala.
On the occasion, Chief Minister encouraged the blood donors by attending the Voluntary Blood Donation Camp organized as part of World Pharmacists Day.
Speaking on the occasion, Chief Minister Professor (Dr.) Manik Saha said that this year’s theme of World Pharmacists’ Day is ‘Pharmacy United in Action for a Healthier World’.
Earlier students of the state had to go abroad to pursue various courses in pharmacy. The Chief Minister said immediate steps would be taken to fill up the necessary faculty and other vacant posts in Regional Institute of Pharmaceutical Science and Technology (RIPSAT).
