Minister Promises Evidence Based Science Policy

At the 99th edition of the Indian Science Congress held in Bhubaneswar Orissa, Minister of Science and Technology Mr. Vilasrao Deshmukh  announced that India will pursue a “well-balanced, transparent and evidence-based science policy”.

Since he has stressed that the policy will be evidence-based,  here is my recommendation - The Minister should issue a strong statement rejecting homeopathy and astrology as sciences and withdraw all government support for these fields.

oh.. and make Ben Goldacre's Bad Science compulsory reading in High School / College.
