Min­is­ter of State for Com­mu­ni­ca­tions (IC), Manoj Sinha re­cently said, at a time when, medical treat­ment and health­care ser­vices are get­ting costlier for the com­mon men, Ayurveda can help us in mak­ing ef­fec­tive treat­ment avail­able to more and more peo­ple.

The Min­is­ter was speak­ing on the oc­ca­sion of Oj Fes­ti­val 2017, a fes­ti­val of Ayurveda and Yoga in New Delhi. The Min­is­ter later launched an on­line plat­form, NirogStreet for knowl­edge shar­ing, con­sul­ta­tion and cer­ti­fy­ing doc­tors for Ayurveda and Yoga.

“Be­fore in­de­pen­dence a lot of our his­toric knowl­edge was lost and no ef­fort was made to re­store it. We need to strengthen our re­search in this area and make it ac­ces­si­ble to peo­ple across the coun­try. The po­ten­tial of Yoga is also be­ing re­alised and the gov­ern­ment is work­ing to­wards pro­mot­ing it. I ap­plaud this en­deav­our to­wards cre­at­ing aware­ness about Ayurveda and Yoga,” Sinha added.
