New Delhi [India], September 18 (ANI): Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan moved a motion to take up Homoeopathy Central Council (Amendment) Bill, 2020 in the Rajya Sabha on Friday.
The Union Minister claimed that the Central Council of Homoeopathy did not cooperate with the Centre in carrying out its duties.
"Central Council of Homeopathy failed in its responsibility...it did not cooperate with the government in carrying out its duties," said the Minister while moving the Bill.
Notably, CPI(M) MP KK Ragesh has registered his protest against the "ordinance raj".
Moreover, Congress leader Ripun Bora, after briefly describing the history of the Council stated that the government has a history of "taking away the autonomy " of institutes and organisations.
The Homoeopathy Central Council (Amendment) Bill, 2020 was introduced in Rajya Sabha on September 14, 2020. The Bill amends the Homoeopathy Central Council Act, 1973.
