J&K has potential to lead country as Wellness & Ayurveda Hub: Sinha


Jammu Tawi, Nov 10: On the occasion of Ayurveda Day, Jammu and Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha said on Friday that under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the ancient wisdom of yoga and ayurveda for holistic well-being of all is benefiting the entire humanity.

He was attending the Pran Pratishtha Ceremony of Bhagwan Dhanvantari at Government Ayurvedic Medical College and Hospital, Akhnoor on the city outskirts.

In his address, the Lt Governor extended his felicitations to the people on the occasion and said the theme of this year's Ayurveda Day, ‘Ayurveda for One Health', is aligned with the theme of 's Presidency ‘Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam'.

He said the integration of yoga, Ayurveda, and other Indian systems of medicine into the mainstream public health system to secure a healthy life for our citizens requires the undivided attention of doctors and other stakeholders.

“It is our collective responsibility to promote the best practices of traditional medicine systems and sensitize students, farmers, and the public to Ayurveda to build a more resilient and sustainable healthcare ecosystem,” he added.

The Lt Governor reiterated the commitment of the UT Administration to strengthen the preventive and holistic care infrastructure, creating a conducive environment, and extend necessary support to Ayurveda startups.

“Jammu Kashmir has the potential to lead the country as a wellness and Ayurveda hub. Efforts towards this goal can be greatly augmented with the help of startups by young entrepreneurs and Ayurveda graduates,” the Lt Governor said.

He said the UT of J&K is bestowed with a wide range of medicinal and aromatic plants, which are valuable commodities.

“We need to run a sustained campaign to make farmers aware of huge potential of herbs and medicinal plants so they can harvest the fruits of the new green revolution,” he added.
