Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur here today launched Madhuyastiadi Kashay (Kada), a proprietary Ayurvedic medicine prepared by the State Aryuveda Department to enhance immunity of the people in the wake of corona pandemic.
Speaking on the occasion, Chief Minister said that the Ayurvedic product would help in boosting immunity and added that it would be provided free of cost to all the corona warriors like doctors, paramedical staff, police, senior citizens and all corona survivors of the State. He said that in accordance with budget announcement made in the Budget 2020-21, this ayurvedic medicine would also be provided free of cost to all the senior citizens of the State.
Chief Minister said that providing Madhuyastiadi Kashay (Kada) free of cost to the Corona warriors was a gesture of gratitude by the State Government towards their selfless service. He said that even Prime Minister in his address to the Nation during ‘Mann Ki Baat’ programme had advised the people to follow the guidelines of Ayush Ministry to enhance body immunity.
Jai Ram Thakur said that since senior citizens and corona warriors were more vulnerable to infection, this ayurvedic preparation would go a long way in boosting immunity of these categories. He said that the State Government would not only ensure free distribution of this preparation to the senior citizens but would also provide them all ayurvedic medicines free of cost.
Chief Minister also distributed this preparation to few corona warriors including doctors and police personnel.
Secretary Ayurveda G.K. Srivastava welcomed the Chief Minister and assured him that the department would ensure adequate availability of this preparation to the people.
