Senior BJP leader Kalraj Mishra has accused CPI(M) member Brinda Karat of trying to defame traditional ayurvedic medicines at the behest of multi-national companies by raising questions about the contents of the drugs being manufactured at Baba Ramdev's ashram.

"Karat was trying to defame the traditional ayurvedic medicines by questioning the ingredients of the medicines being manufactured at the yoga guru's ashram, but her designs would be foiled by the people who have immense faith in Ramdev's yoga teaching and medicines," Mishra told reporters in an informal chat.

The senior BJP leader also attacked Union Health Minister A Ramdoss for sending a medicine sample belonging to the baba's ashram for laboratory test without the CPM leader's permission.

Karat would not not succeed in her nefarious designs to malign the traditional Indian medicines, the senior BJP leader said, adding that spontaneous public support for the yoga guru and the nationwide agitation across the country against Karat reflected the immense faith of the people in both Ramdev and the medicines prescribed by him.
