    Ayurveda in HP saw a great growth under the able leadership of Ms. Viplove thakur who was Ayurveda minister in Congress Govt’s previous regime. During the last 9 months of BJP rule the Ayurveda system and practitioners of this system faced govt. apathy. Govt. has done nothing to uplift the Indian system of medicine. HP can become a Natural health tourism destinatin but Govt. esp. our health minister(Who himself is Ayurveda doctor) is so much busy in recruiting MBBS doctors that he forgot his own mother system. IT IS LIKE A SON DITCHING HIS PARENTS AFTER GETTING MARRIED TO A BEAUTIFUL GIRL.
