Haridwar: Yoga guru Ramdev lauded Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s announcement on Wednesday of centralised coronavirus vaccination drive for all adults and administering coronavirus vaccines free of cost at government hospitals for adults from June 21. Ramdev also urged the people of India to get vaccinated, while also stating that he too will take his jab very soon.
The Yoga guru further added that people should practice Ayurveda and yoga, which will help as a shield against diseases and will avert COVID-19 casualties.
“Prime Minister Narendra Modi has made a historic announcement of vaccinating every citizen free of cost from June 21. Everybody should get vaccinated. Also, people should practice yoga and Ayurveda which will prepare a protective shield against disease and will also prevent COVID casualties. I will also get vaccinated soon,” Ramdev said.
Speaking on the drug mafia, the 55-year-old said, “We cannot be at enmity with any organisation. And all the good doctors are all messengers sent by God on this earth. They are a gift to this planet. But if a person being a doctor does anything wrong then that is the fault of that individual. Pradhan Mantri Jan Aushadh stores had to be opened because drug mafias have opened fancy shops where they are selling unnecessary medicines at very high prices instead of basic and necessary ones.”
“Our fight is not with the doctors of the country, the doctors who are opposing us, they are not doing it through an institution,” he added.
Addressing the much-talked about controversy over Ayurveda and allopathy, Baba Ramdev said that there was no doubt why allopathy is better when it comes to emergency cases and surgeries. However, Ayurveda treats incurable diseases.
“We want that nobody should be harassed in the name of medicines and people should refrain from unnecessary medication. There is no doubt that allopathy is better for emergency cases and surgeries. But other life-threatening diseases, incurable disorders can be cured through ancient practices listed in Yoga Ayurveda, which is not a matter of argument,” said Ramdev.
