Telangana government is set to come up with another 20-bedded Ayush hospitals in the state. Ayush Department’s in-charge, Commissioner Dr A Rajender Reddy said that the government has already set up a three, 5-bedded Ayush hospital in the state. Besides improving infrastructure at Ayush hospitals in the state, we are also trying to fill in 183 vacancies of medical officers and lecturers in the state, Dr Reddy said at the inaugural function of the three-day Indian Traditional Healthcare Workshop and Exhibition being organized by Hyderabad-based BigMarketerr which was kicked off at Hitex here, with the support of the Telangana Government’s Ayush Department.
We must discourage the excessive usage of antibiotics and pain killers among the people as it is very dangerous. The Commissioner said that 7 lakh people die every year due to lack of resistance to bacterial infections. This number may go up to 1 crore by 2050, Dr Reddy added. Speaking on the occasion, Telangana State Organic Certificate Authority (TSOCA) Director Dr Keshavlu, said that before 1965, the entire agriculture used to be organic. We need to reverse that trend. He said that the Telangana government has set up TSOCA by adopting the National Standards of Organic Production (NSOP) under the National Program for Organic Production (NPOP). This is a certification procedure by which the body assures that the produce is methodically assessed and conforms as organically produced.
Besides Ayurveda, Yoga, Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and Homeopathy, it has a separate pavilion on millets, organic and natural farming, property and farm land, kitchen garden, health, wellness, beauty franchise and startup opportunities. A pavilion for small and cottage industries is also planned, he added. The expo has 80 exhibitors and 120 stalls. Some of the exhibitors include the Pragati Group, Big Basket, Panama Agriculture and others. Portable oxygen cylinders, paper made from cow dung, home crops, ‘Save Grain’ bags, Eco-Grills are a few highlights at the exhibition. – United News of India
