The UP government reinstated 2,000 ayurvedic, unani and homeopathy (Ayush) doctors whose services had been terminated by the Mayawati government. The BSP government had justified its stand saying that these doctors were not of much use as there was no budget to buy medicines prescribed by them.

But the Akhilesh Yadav government believes that Ayush doctors could be used to tackle the crisis of shortage of doctors up to some extent.

“At present, the state cadre has around 9,500 doctors against a sanctioned strength of 13,500. This huge gap can be fulfilled up to some extent by Ayush doctors,” said a health official.

“These doctors would at least save the common man from the clutches of quacks,” he added.
