Rajya Sabha: Set up AYUSH Medical College in Vizag, Vijay Sai urges Centre
In Rajya Sabha on Friday, YSRCP MP Vijay Sai Reddy requested the Central government to set up the AYUSH (Ayurveda, Yoga and Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha, and Homeopathy) Medical College in Visakhapatnam as the 50-bedded AYUSH Hospital was already sanctioned under the National AYUSH Mission. Students of the AYUSH Medical College would also benefit from the Regional Ayurveda Research Institute in Vijayawada, he added. The MP asked the Centre to clarify as to how many AYUSH Health-Wellness Centres were set up in Andhra Pradesh. Vijay Sai also sought an independent board for promotion of Indian medicine.
