PM Modi praises doctors, tells them to take up studies on yoga.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday requested the Indian Medical Association (IMA) to take up “evidence-based studies” on yoga in “mission mode”.

With 49 per cent of India’s vulnerable population of age 60 and above having been given at least one dose of the Covid-19 vaccine, the Prime Minister praised doctors — who were the first to be administered the shots — for playing a crucial role in encouraging vaccine “enthusiasm and confidence” in the country.

The Prime Minister’s request to doctors to study yoga comes at a time when the IMA, which describes itself as “the only representative, national voluntary organisation of Doctors of Modern Scientific System of Medicine”, has declared war on yoga guru Ramdev, who has repeatedly run down allopathic medicine in the fight against the coronavirus.
