BUOYED BY a clean chit, yoga guru Baba Ramdev suggested that there should now be an investigation and action against CPM politburo member Brinda Karat for alleging that there were traces of human bones and skulls in his medicines.

He said this at a Press conference at Sahara Shehar soon after the Uttaranchal Government announced that there was no trace of such elements in his medicines.

“The Uttaranchal Government had collected samples from our ashram and tested them. Today, they made the reports public and said that there were no traces of human bones and skulls. Our stand has been vindicated. And now there should be a probe against those who spread such canards about us,” he said.

He said Karat had put the nation’s pride at stake when yoga and Ayurveda were making a comeback. He said it was unethical of Karat to make baseless allegations about his medicines, as human bones and skulls were never used in Ayurvedic formulatons. He said Karat’s statements might have been part of a larger conspiracy to malign Ayurveda in the ‘interests’ of the multinational pharma industry.

About allegations of labour law violations, Ramdev said: “There are hundreds and thousands of people who work as volunteers, and many who are paid. When I am working in the interest of an infinite number of people, how can I not look after the staff at the ashram. There are no labour law violations.” “I am thankful, to people who did not take the allegations seriously,” he said. (See also Lucknow Live)
