Ramdev, a known supporter of the BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, was recently in news for stating that he wasn’t sure who the next prime minister of India will be. This was largely seen as his tacit disapproval of Modi as the prime minister of India after the next Lok Sabha polls.
He had said, “Now the political situation is very difficult. We cannot say who will (be) the next prime minister or who will lead the country, but situation is very interesting…”
Meanwhile, in a first-of-its-kind order, the Uttarakhand High Court has directed a company run by Ramdev to share a percentage of its profits with local farmers and communities. The high court, according to news agency PTI, gave the order while rejecting a petition of Divya Pharmacy against the Uttarakhand Biodiversity Board and upholding the provisions of fair and equitable benefit-sharing as provided under the Biological Diversity Act, 2002.
