Karnataka AYUSH doctors for strike

Nearly 25,000 doctors affiliated to AYUSH (Ayurveda, Yoga and Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and Homeopathy) Federation of India’s Karnataka branch are planning to go on an indefinite strike from today unless the government allows them to prescribe some common allopathic drugs for emergency cases. A list of 20 common emergency allopathic drugs helpful in treating emergency cases and vetted by high powered committee that includes eminent heart surgeon Dr Devi Prasad Shetty has been sent to the government for approval.
Nearly 14 states including Maharashtra have already made these changes. “Our single point charter of demand for agitation starting from July 20 is for the government to make it legal for AYUSH fraternity to give allopathic drugs,” he said.
Repeated representations to authorities concerned had not elicited any favourable response so far, he said, adding that there is no equivalent medicine in Ayurveda, Yoga, Unani, Sidda and Homeopathic (AYUSH) systems of medicine to treat emergency cases such as high fever or wheezing. source:http://health.india.com/news/after-maha-karnatakas-ayush-docs-go-on-strike-over-allopathic-drugs-issue/comment-page-1/#comment-19749
