The world today recognises the power of Ayush, said Rawat while addressing the inaugural session of the fair. He further said that this is an opportunity for Uttarakhand as well as India to promote and expand their Ayush capabilities for the benefit of the society. He said that the state government would take initiatives to make Uttarakhand the land of Ayurveda. Ramesh Kumar Sudhanshu, secretary, Ayush and Ayush education Uttarakhand, said that the objective of the fair is to promote the traditional systems of medicines. He further said that Ayush systems are capable of curing the most complex diseases. They are economical too, he added.
Ramanand Meena, deputy secretary, Ministry of Ayush, Government of India, said that India can bring a revolution in healthcare and be a teacher to the world if the strength lying in the traditional systems of medicine is used rightly. He said that Uttarakhand has a vast source of medicinal and herbal plants. If they are properly exploited it would boost Ayush industry. He asked the state government to send proposals for more Arogya fair in the state.
