Minister of State for Ayush flagged off six ambulances
Minister of State for Ayush, Dr Munjapara Mahendrabhai Kalubhai laid the foundation stone for Government Ayurveda College and Hospital at Surendranagar, Gujarat. Ministry of Ayush under its centrally sponsored scheme National Ayush Mission (NAM) is supporting the efforts of the Government of Gujarat for establishing state-of-the-art Ayush facilities.
The ceremony was graced by the Minister of Forest, Environment & Climate Change, Government of Gujarat, Kiritsinh Rana, Secretary Ayush, Government of India Vaidya Rajesh Kotecha and other dignitaries from state and district administration.
Government Ayurveda College & Hospital will include infrastructure for the College and a 100 bedded hospital, hostel block for students and staff quarter. For supporting research and innovation in the Ayush sector, an animal house and herbal garden will also be established on the campus.
On this occasion, Dr Kalubhai said, “Quality medical education at affordable prices in the Ayush sector is becoming a present-day reality and National Ayush Mission is adding wings to it. Our traditional medicine systems are efficacious and are being practised for ages. It’s only due to the efforts of our Prime Minister that WHO-GCTM was established in Jamnagar. There were five Government Ayurvedic Colleges in Gujarat and now we are establishing the sixth one. It will immensely benefit the students and surrounding community.”
On this occasion, Dr Kalubhai also flagged off six ambulances, four of which were approved by him under the MPLAD scheme, for the service of the local community.
