The distribution of much-talked-about Ayurvedic medicine prepared by practitioner Anandaiah based in Krishnapatnam to cure the Covid-19 has started in Andhra Pradesh from Monday.
However, the medicine distribution was started in the Sarvepalli Assembly constituency as a pilot project. Around 1.50 lakh families in Podalakuru, Venkatachalam, Manubolu, Muthukur, and in Thotapalligudur mandals will be receiving the medicine.
The Volunteer system introduced by Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy is playing a key role in supplying the medicine to the doorsteps of the families in these mandalas. Sarvepalli MLA Kakani Govardhan Reddy is overseeing the distribution program.
With Section 144 being in place in Krishnapatnam village, Ayurvedic practitioner Anadaiah had requested everyone to not visit the village and said that medicine would be supplied to the district headquarters once the distribution gets over in Sarvepalli.
The medicine was prepared after the Andhra Pradesh High Court gave its nod to supply the Ayurvedic medicine. While giving its nod for the medicine, the court gave two weeks' time to the government to submit a report on whether the eye drops medicine can be allowed or not.
