PM Modi Inaugurates All India Institute of Ayurveda in Delhi
The Prime Minister urged Ayurveda practitioners to remain committed to their field of knowledge.
Underscoring the importance of Ayurveda, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday said the time has come for a "health revolution" under the aegis of the traditional medicine system, and pitched for an affordable and accessible healthcare.
Addressing a gathering after dedicating the country's first All India Institute of Ayurveda to the nation here, the Prime Minister noted that the world is heading "back to nature and wellness".
Marking ‘Ayurveda Divas’ on Tuesday, he described the medicine system as India’s strength, and urged those working in the sector to revive it. He also asked experts from the field to find medicines which can, like allopathy, give immediate relief to people, but without side-effects.
According to the Prime Minister, efforts were allegedly made to destroy "India's strengths" during the "era of slavery" (pre-Independence period). Ayurveda, he added, did not become a priority after Independence too.
