Centre overruled objections by autonomous institute to help Ramdev get school board: Report

| @indiablooms | 21 Jun 2021, 03:30 pm

New Delhi/IBNS: The central government had overruled objections made by an autonomous institute and altered a crucial agenda item in its council meeting record to help yoga guru Ramdev to set up his school board, a report by The Indian Express said.

The action helped Ramdev to set up Bharatiya Shiksha Board (BSB), which is a national school on Vedic education, an investigation by the daily revealed.

The entire process was done hurriedly to avoid the Model Code of Conduct (MCC) before the 2019 Lok Sabha Elections.

The move had received a push back from Ujjain-based Maharshi Sandipani Rashtriya Veda Vidya Pratishthan (MSRVVP), an autonomous organisation which works to preserve "Ved Vidya".

At a Governing Council meeting in 2019, MSRVVP, which wanted to set up its own board, was asked to appoint a private sponsoring body for setting up BSB.

Earlier, Ramdev was embroiled in a controversy over his remark on Allopathy.

Ramdev, who is the face of India's one of the largest consumer goods and alternative medicine empires Patanjali, said at a recent event, "Lakhs of people have lost their lives due to allopathic medicines, their number being far greater than those who died because they could not get treatment or oxygen."

Facing the ire of doctors, he had withdrawn his statement.
