The Chief Minister said that the Jan Swasthya Board will solve the problems of Non-Allopathic doctors. They will get themselves registered in Para Medical Council.

A committee will be constituted under the Chairmanship of Public Health Minister. It will give suggestions to make their profession more respectable. He clearly stated that everything possible in their interest will be done. A statutory framework should be prepared for non-allopathic methods. Keeping in view the shortage of doctors, a thought should be given to the use of services of non-allopathic doctors.

CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan mentioned that native (Desi) medical methods have their own importance. They should be saved. Desi medical methods provide complete treatment. He stated that the trend of allopathy has enhanced over the period of time. It is progressing because of the continuous research that is missing in traditional medical methods. Efforts to make it more effective and useful should be made by conducting research in these methods.

CM Chouhan also said that common man has complete trust in doctors. The contribution of non-allopathic doctors is significant in building new Madhya Pradesh. The role of non-allopathic doctors will be important to further strengthen the medical services of the state.
