The Lt. Governor Shri VK Saxena today visited the Chaudhary Brahma Prakash Ayurved Charak Sansthan (CBPACS) and directed officials to explore new avenues to adopt ancient, often lesser known, traditional medical practices so as to develop this institute into a leading Ayurveda Centre in the world. He urged the officials to expand the capacities of the hospital and adopt newer medical procedures so that the centre is equipped with holistic treatment facilities for all diseases. At the same time, Shri Saxena said, the CBPACS could be developed into a centre for knowledge sharing with neighbouring countries, in lines with the vision of the Hon’ble Prime Minister.
The LG, accompanied by senior officials, also launched a mega plantation drive of 10,000 medicinal trees on the Campus with active participation of students and locals. He further asked the officials to utilize at least 25 acres of the available land for plantation of medicinal trees like Moringa, Amla, Trifala, etc. The LG directed to plant Desi Gulab, which is used for various medicinal purposes, over at least 1 acre of land.
Shri Saxena took a round of the entire hospital and interacted with the patients undergoing treatment for various ailments at the hospital. The LG also inspected the paediatrics department and sought to know the treatment being administered to the children. Shri Saxena particularly asked the officials to increase the capacity of the paediatrics department to accommodate more children. The LG directed the hospital authorities to further strengthen the existing leech therapy department and also develop a fish treatment and Tibetan medicine departments in coming days.
Shri Saxena asked the officials to open various facilities like Panch Karma, naturopathy and Ayurvedic massage to the general public at a reasonable cost so that the centre receives a larger footfall while adding to the financial sustainability of the hospital. He directed officials to tie up with big Ayurvedic and naturopathy institutions in the country and offer similar services/treatments in Delhi for which people have to travel to other states.
The LG also instructed to open a cafeteria at the centre that so that people coming in from far off places can find a leisure space in the natural ambience of the hospital. He also directed officials to collect feedback from the passed out students about the job prospects and accordingly increase the training capacity of the hospital.
