TV guru Ramdev gets Lalu balm
The RJD supremo has sprung a surprise for the embattled yoga guru.india Updated: Jan 05, 2006 17:52 IST
RJD supremo Lalu Prasad on Thursday came out in support of embattled yoga guru Ramdev saying multinationals were after those who propagate the indigenous cause.
"MNCs are opposed to people like me and Ramdev. They are against those who propagate indigenous causes," Prasad told reporters in New Delhi.
Ramdev is in the eye of a storm in the wake of allegations that animal and human parts were found in samples of herbal medicines prepared by his pharmacy.
Prasad said the samples should be tested to reveal the truth. "Even Ramdev is saying the same thing," he said.
In a lighter vein, the Railway Minister said that so long as the herbal medicines added years to life, it hardly mattered whether it contained bones of manav ya danav (human beings or devils).
