Warning that the government would handle, the many fakes, and quacks who go around claiming to cure AIDS within 3-6 months, with an iron hand, he announced the plan of the state for recruiting counsellors, lab technicians and doctors, to strengthen voluntary counselling and for the opening of more testing centres for HIV/AIDS patients.

The minister praised Ashodaya for checking human trafficking and for their act of providing sex workers with food at cheaper rates to sex workers , he further stressed that it was the responsibility of both public and NGOs to check spread diseases. Calling upon the organisations and public to join hands to combat the dreaded disease, he explained that the government was reaching out to sex workers through NGOs as many of them face police and legal harassments.
