Took steps against false claims, undermining allopathy unacceptable: Centre criticizes Patanjali

patanjali

NEW DELHI: In the misleading advertisement case, the Centre told the Supreme Court that it is an individual's choice to avail health services under allopathy or Ayush and denigrating any system should be discouraged.

In an affidavit issued by the Ministry of AYUSH, it has been stated that Patanjali's advertisements undermining allopathy are unacceptable and such advertisements are against public interest. Referring to Patanjali's claim it has developed a Covid cure 'Coronil', the affidavit said that the company had been told not to put out such advertisements until the clinical trial of the medicine is complete.

Earlier, the Supreme Court criticized the central government for not taking action against fake advertisements in the misleading advertisement case. The court also shredded the Uttarakhand government for not acting against the Patanjali. The Centre filed a counter affidavit after this.

In 2022, the Indian Medical Association filed a complaint against Patanjali for allegedly projecting allopathy in bad light and selling misleading products.

The court had reprimanded Ramdev and Acharya Balkrishna in the case. The court expressed its deep dissatisfaction with the affidavit given by Patanjali in the contempt of court case and rejected its apology.
