BHOPAL: Now Ayurveda and Unani doctors will able to practice allopathic medicines in Madhya Pradesh. Twin bills were passed in the state assembly on Friday to enable these doctors to prescribe allopathic medicines. This is being done to meet out the shortage of doctors , health minister Rustam Singh told the house. 

Two bills-Madhya Pradesh Ayurvigyan parishad (sanshodhan) vidhayak 2016 and MP Ayurvdic ,Unani tatha prakritik chikitsa vyavsai (sanshodhan) vudhayak 2016 were passed on Friday amidst opposition from the Congress. 

Bala Bachchan, acting leader of the opposition said, "Now the affect of Vyapam scame is clear. More than 1000 doctors have been denied their degrees after the scam. The MBBS takes more than 5 years to complete, here you will train them in 3 months only." 

He said that the government would withdraw the bill. 

Ramniwas Rawat, chief whip of the Congress said, "this is highly objectionable. This government is playing with the health of the people. The government has not even taken the permission of medical council of India (MCI)." 

Rawat also said that the government is not paying doctors well which is why no doctor is interested in government job. On the other hand doctors of Deepak foundation of Gujarat working for MP government get Rs 1 lakh salary. 

Bachachan said that "by taking help of Deepak foundation, the government wants privatisation of health services in MP." 

But health minister Rustam Singh assured the house that, "the Ayurveda and Unani doctors will be allowed to practice on 72 medicines. This is a temporary arrangement and as soon as doctors are available this would be withdrawn." 

He said that some states like Maharashtra and Gujarat have also been following this practice.
