TAMBARAM: The Union Minister for Health and Family Welfare, Anbumani Ramadoss, on Saturday said the National Institute of Siddha at Tambaram Sanatorium will be named after Ayothee Dasar and there was no going back on it. Stating that the Centre had taken a concrete decision on naming the institute after the Ayothee Dasar, Mr. Anbumani said it was just getting slightly delayed.

However, some organisations were taking advantage of this issue, he said. He was talking to reporters at Mamallapuram where he took part in a National Level Experience on Communication organised by the National Aids Control Organisation.

He said his Ministry was planning to buy another five acres near the institute to add to the existing facilities.
