Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh) [India], December 6 (ANI): Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has said that Pandit Khushilal Sharma Government Ayurveda Institute should not only be in the top-10 institutes but also make its mark as the best institute in the country. For this purpose, they have to encourage research in the institute and conduct activities using innovative technology.
CM Chouhan made this remark while addressing the dedication and foundation stone laying programme at the Institute's Silver Jubilee Auditorium in Bhopal on Tuesday.
Chouhan said, "In the difficult times of Corona, Yoga and Ayurveda lifted the country and the world out of despair. People all over the world are adopting Yoga and Ayurveda for a healthy lifestyle. Arrangements for the best treatment should be made with dedication in the institute. Every possible cooperation will be extended by the state government in research and establishment of latest techniques. The possibilities of setting up an Ayurveda University in the state will also be considered. Soon a boys' hostel will be constructed in the institute."
