Focus on reducing the effects of the corona
He further said that in such a situation it is very important to know how this will affect the people affected in the future. Care must also be taken to determine how the impact can be minimized.

India becomes the independent manufacture of medicines
Regarding India’s pharmaceutical industry, he said that the 75 to 80 percent range of active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) made from drugs come from China. Around 100 percent. I would like these APIs to be manufactured in India itself in order to realize Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s dream of a separate India.
He said the amount of API should be sufficient so that the drugs made from it are reasonably priced. I’m from Uttar Pradesh. So UP will be the first priority to do something like this. To this end, talks with the government are also taking place at the first level.
