While inaugurating the newly constructed 53-bed Ayurveda Bhavan at Paradise Chowmuhani at Agartala on Wednesday, Chief Minister Dr. Manik Saha said, “Health is wealth. Without good health everything is in vain.
The present state government has given priority to the expansion of better health services and also working on priority basis to advance every sector including education, agriculture, and communication”.
He added that the present Central and State Governments have also taken initiatives to improve Ayurvedic medical services with equal priority along with allopathic medical services.
Chief Minister further said, “Ayurveda is part of Indian cultural heritage. Once upon a time people from outside the country used to come to take benefits of Ayurveda medical services in India. The whole world followed the path of India”.
He added, “Over time this cultural heritage was lost by the people. However, people started discovering the lost culture after the central government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi came to power”.
Chief Minister Dr Saha further said, “Research on Ayurveda is going on across the globe. Nowadays, the medical science of Ayurveda is being accepted by people. Ayurveda of India is being acknowledged all over the world”.
The Chief Minister urged the medical staff to be courteous to people in providing medical services.
