‘Satyamev Jayate’: Maharashtra flags off Generic medicine stores across the state
Mumbai, June 16: So the ‘Satyamev Jayate’ phenomenon has made headlines again. And this time, despite fighting their way through a barrage of criticisms and allegations, the ‘Satyamev Jayate’ team can now consider themselves as instrumental in brightening up more lives with their hearty smiles.
A few episodes back, the iconic TV show had exposed the discrepancies and corruption involved in the selling of medicines. The episode further went ahead and exposed several flaws in the medical systems of the country, and as is well-known by now, Aamir Khan and his team have had to receive the criticism of many doctors.
Aamir, however, has a reason – and a huge one – to smile about now. His show has played an important role in the Maharashtra Government giving the green signal to a lot more generic medicine stores than the state now has. The Government announced that Generic medicines would be made available across all Government hospitals. In addition, the State Government has also planned to open medical stores across the state where generic medicines will be stocked in adequate amounts, and will be readily available for people.
