Dr. Rakesh Gupta, Chairman, Hospital Board, IMA Chhattisgarh told The Free Press Journal, the comments made by Ramdev against the doctors who are fighting Covid19 round the clock, allopathy treatment and doctors are highly unwarranted, objectionable and defaming in nature. It will create fear and distrust in masses against the doctors, medical practitioners, and nurses and allopathy. It also creates mistrust towards the government's vaccination programme and could derail the system.
