Telangana will strengthen AYUSH, says Deputy CM

          KHAMMAM. AUG. 10: Thiru.T Rajaiah, the Telangana Deputy Chief Minister has affirmed that the TRS government will strengthen the Department of AYUSH (Ayurveda, Yoga, Unani, Siddha and Homeopathy) to harness the potential of alternative and traditional systems of medicine to safeguard public health. He was speaking at a meeting after inaugurating the second floor of the Homeopathy hospital building. He formally launched a special drive to distribute homeopathy medicines for prevention of dengue, malaria and chikun gunya on the occasion. The Collector, Thiru. K. Ilambarithi presided over the function.
On addressing the gathering, Mr. Rajaiah emphasized the need for effective implementation of preventive steps such as anti-mosquito drive to keep the vector borne diseases at bay. The field level functionaries of the government departments should focus on spreading health awareness among Adivasis living in the far flung areas of the Bhadrachalam Agency, he said, suggesting that mass awareness programmes should be conducted in Koya and other tribal languages to enable the Adivasis take preventive healthcare measures and access medical services in time.
