Now people use Dettol, and some of them now use it (Dettol) to wash their hands. This is the only progress we have made.” The audience is said to have responded with laughter.<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Later, endorsing the benefits of homeopathy, Lalu said that allopathy has side effects, but homeopathy does not.He added that he was filling in for his son Tej Pratap, the state Health Minister, as he was busy and could not attend the homoeopathy doctors’ meet.Responding to recent criticism of him acting like a ‘proxy’ for his son, Lalu clarified that he had gone to inspect the IGIMS hospital as it was was built when he was Bihar CM. “I just wanted to survey how the hospital was functioning nowadays,” the report quotes him as saying.
