Unsatisfied with the minister's answer to his starred question which also asked if the state government intended to conduct such a survey, Sampat Singh suggested him to work harder.

The minister said though such clinics had been raided several times and quacks booked by the police, no survey to identify them had been conducted so far. To this, Sampat Singh said more steps were required by the government.

Having heard the disussion, speaker Kuldeep Sharma also asked the minister to take note of the suggestions by Sampat Singh.
